Summer 2023 Update

Supporting community

When faced with unexpected events, it’s important for communities to come together and support each other. We continue to support our communities and help one another in times of need.

In this update, we will share news about new funding for women in trades and technology, financial aid for equity-deserving students on work placement, the impact of Urgent Aid and an update on NSCC’s Sydney Waterfront Campus.
