Targeted funding for health care programs is allowing Camosun College to train more health care assistants, as well as more mental health and addiction workers, to meet the growing health care needs of the region. Minister Andrew Wilkinson and Minister Terry Lake were at Lansdowne Campus Wednesday morning to announce the new funding, to meet students and to tour the teaching lab.

Cynthia Smith, Dean of Health and Human Services says, “The need for health care assistants and mental health workers continues to grow. Our waitlists are long and the field is asking us for more graduates. Today’s announcement means we will be able to prepare more students to contribute to healthy people in a variety of settings including Indigenous and rural communities.”
