Selkirk College Training In-Demand Health Care Professionals

Frontline health care workers are in high demand in our region and Selkirk College’s Health Care Assistant Program is training to fill that gap. It’s a profession that appeals to many eager to find a solid career in health care.

With a growing demand in the region for professionals to care for the elderly and persons with disabilities, the Provincial Government has provided special funding for a Health Care Assistant Program cohort that will begin training in September at the Selkirk College Trail Campus.
