The president of Loyalist College has outlined its future growth plans for engaging in applied technology to members of the Quinte Economic Development Commission.
President Ann Marie Vaughan is calling on the Quinte Economic Development Commission to help build on the college’s research and development.
In her presentation to the Commission on Tuesday, Vaughan asked how the QEDC would suggest that the college’s training can be expanded.
Executive director of QEDC Chris King says the Commission has a strong relationship with Loyalist in creating a skilled trained workforce.
Belleville Mayor Taso Christopher pointed to the need for engineering student enrolment and said there were “thousands of work opportunities across the region.”
Mayor Christopher suggested a caucus meeting of the municipal members to develop support for the college’s upcoming annual funding application to the provincial government.
