New tech seats on the way for Selkirk College

The province has announced hundreds of new tech seats in nine programs at post secondary institutions throughout the province, including Selkirk.

It's part of their new tech expansion plan, to provide more opportunities to pursue good paying jobs in BC's booming tech industry.

Selkirk College is set to receive $100,000 dollars to plan for 40 additional student spaces in web application development certificate and digital fabrication and design diploma programs. 

The program expansion will be supported with annual funding of $400,000, once fully up and running in 2020-21.

The Province is investing an initial $900,000 to kick-start planning, development and implementation of 370 additional tech seats province-wide.
