The Canadian Colleges for a Resilient Recovery (C2R2), Quick Train Canada Program, is a coalition of fifteen leading colleges, cégeps, institutes, and polytechnics from across Canada. The focus is to provide training opportunities to acquire the skills needed to transition Canadian workers to meet the requirement to support a clean economy, foster a more inclusive and equitable workforce, develop training and research opportunities, create inclusive opportunities, and continue to further truth and reconciliation with First Nations, Inuit, and Metis people.
As a proud member of the C2R2, Saskatchewan Polytechnic is thrilled to be a part of a coalition of Canadian institutions committed to sustainability providing skills required to transition Canada into a clean, low carbon economy. C2R2 aims to train 10,000 learners through micro-credentials, thus providing current workers with opportunities to reduce barriers, gain new skills, and create a national framework in skill development.
The micro-credentials below are currently open to Canadian citizens/Permanent Residents (ages 18+) and are part of a training initiative to provide workers with new skills needed to support a clean economy. The micro-credentials are fully funded by Canadian Colleges for a Resilient Recovery (C2R2) and the Government of Canada. The micro-credentials are tuition free until March 31, 2024.
