Canada’s Youth Employment Services (YES), through funding received from the Government of Ontario’s Skills Development Fund, is launching a new Cyber Security training program for Canadian post-secondary youth and Ukrainian refugees.
With the current conflict between Russia and Ukraine preceded by constant cyberattacks, and cyber security around the world on the rise, “the demand for cyber security experts is outpacing the number of qualified applicants,” according to YES.
The program will help Canadian youngsters, refugees from Ukraine, and job seekers gain a cyber-security certificate, cognitive behaviour therapy, specialized pre-employment, mentorship and future skills training, helping them get on a pathway to reliable employment.
