    Comprehensive Career Programs Must Include STEM Information

    November 25th - 25th, 2019

    Most jobs in Canada require, or benefit from, a STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) background. Some STEM careers are obvious (e.g., health and medical professionals, engineers, scientists), but many are not (e.g., journalists, welders, computer animators, chefs). Students limit their career options by opting out of STEM courses.
