The program has been developed through a partnership between Digital Nova Scotia (DNS) and Bluedrop ISM and is funded by the Government of Canada’s Adult Learning, Literacy and Essential Skills Program.

A major program objective is to ensure that participants develop valuable skills and to gain a solid foundation that will allow them to gain the confidence to find meaningful job opportunities that will allow them to thrive and support the ICT sector across the four Atlantic provinces.

Over the course of three years, Skills For Hire Atlantic will train 1,500 participants (300 in year 1, 600 in year 2, and 600 in year 3). This program will train participants on in-demand, entry-level positions to become active and qualified members of the Atlantic tech ecosystem, thereby working to fill the existing gaps in local talent.
