The labour shortage in Canada continues to be a pressing issue for the Canadian government. Numerous studies have shown immigration and the right training will be key to filling essential roles and addressing this gap.

A time of growth

Building on its 30+ year legacy as a leading career college that provides practical diploma, certificate, and postgraduate programs in business, healthcare, and technology, Computek has opened a third campus in Ajax, in addition to its colleges in Scarborough and Markham, Ontario. The college uniquely focuses on holistic training for newcomers and immigrants so they are both job and life-ready in their new homes.

This expansion comes at a key time with the federal government working to welcome and meaningfully employ a record number of newcomers to offer programs and employment streams that matter. Rising to the top of the list when it comes to jobs in demand in 2023 are healthcare, business, and technology roles- all focuses of Computek College.

“It’s a key time to expand our footprint in Canada with an additional campus by focusing on our key purpose, offering the best possible higher education tailored to the specific needs of newcomers when it matters most,” said Wazeer “TJ” Jalal, Executive Vice President of Computek College. 

As one of the first international students at Computek 25 years ago, today TJ plays a critical role in empowering every student while ensuring they have access to and benefit from industry-proven instructors, innovative and culturally responsive curriculums that support fast-changing labour market demands, and a diverse community network of business leaders, entrepreneurs and public servants. The result is producing new success stories every day.

Computek prides itself on ensuring international and local students pay the same tuition and offers business, technology, and healthcare programs in virtual and hybrid formats to meet the needs and unique circumstances of all learners.
