Education Awards

Apply to get access to the education and training needed for the jobs of the future.

Helping Canadians access upskilling and reskilling.

We understand that it has never been more important for Canadians to gain the skills and education they need to advance their careers and gain stability. Yet for many students this can be out of reach financially. That’s why Coast Capital is working to support people to access the education and skills training they need to prepare them for the jobs of the future.

Accessing post-secondary education is a big financial commitment and we’re here to remove one more obstacle on young people on their path to a better financial future.

We are working with the following community partners to offer Education Awards.
