DEWALT Partners With Humber to Support the Next Generation of Skilled Trades Professionals

We are truly grateful to DEWALT for their commitment to Humber College and the Centre for Skilled Trades & Technology. Their partnership and $300,000 donation will support our Humber FAST students in the skilled trades and fund scholarships, tools for students and additional meaningful supports.

FAST is playing a significant role in addressing the skilled trade shortage in Ontario and demonstrating our commitment to building a strong future skilled workforce.

Associate Dean, Michael Auchincloss and Director, Academic Programs Skilled Trades & Apprenticeship, Philip Stubbs are valued faculty members who are committed to our students to prepare them for the jobs of the future. This also includes encouraging women to pursue a career in skilled trades and successfully thrive in a male-dominated industry.

DEWALT will provide brand ambassadors, including Kate Campbell who runs her own company, Kate’s Contracting Inc. and was a former guest on HGTV “Holmes on Holmes.” Kate will appear at Humber events and support recruiting the next generation of skilled trades professionals while empowering women to put on a hard hat and a pair of steel-toe boots and shatter the glass ceiling on pursuing a career in skilled trades.
