Episode 5 - Unifying Career Colleges Across Borders

Philosophical bias against proprietary career schools amongst some policymakers isn’t just a challenge unique to America, but also experienced by our neighbor to the north 一 Canada. To discuss how Canadian career colleges continue to innovate in a very different landscape, host Jason Altmire talks with Michael Sangster, CEO of the National Association for Career Colleges (NACC) in Canada.

Michael explains how Canadian career schools handle political challenges geared against them and how they prove their value through helping to fill the current shortage of supply chain workers, truck drivers, personal support workers, and more in-demand jobs. Then, Michael and Jason discuss how Canadian government funding is different from American funding, how immigration and recruitment policies affect Canadian proprietary schools, and how joining the national association gives members unique advantages to connect with like-minded people.
