SASKATCHEWAN POLYTECHNIC, MOOSE JAW CAMPUS A technical and trade college, has an enrollment of almost 4,000 students annually, generating 3,000 graduates every year and adding to the much-needed skilled workers in the local labour market. These graduates are highly trained in the areas of Engineering Technologies, Building Trades, and Business Administration. Other programs such as Food Services, Adult Basic Education and English as a Second Language are also offered. Moose Jaw has the advantage of being the only campus in the province to offer a co-op education work experience program, and students can transition into University degree programs receiving full credit for courses taken. Fortunately Saskatchewan Polytechnic graduates want to stay in Moose Jaw … so long as they can “find the job they want”, as the survey says. Work continues in 2012/13 as City leaders and community stakeholders work closely with officials of Saskatchewan Polytechnic and the Provincial government towards building of a student residence. A residence would help establish an international student program at the Moose Jaw Campus.
Moose Jaw Campus employs 304 people with all Saskatchewan Polytechnic campuses having an annual economic impact of approximately $393 million on the provincial economy. In May 2013, Saskatchewan Polytechnic announced it will lay off 16 full and part time employees, with 1.5 full-time equivalencies from Moose Jaw Campus. In addition to its traditional education role and importance as a major institutional employer, Saskatchewan Polytechnic serves the business community through special education and research initiatives. There is a Cooperative Education program through which business and technology students gain on-the job training at area businesses and industries; this
very successful program provides benefits to the entire region.
NATO FLYING TRAINING (NFTC) Canadian Forces Base 15 Wing Moose Jaw is home to the NATO Flying Training (NFTC), delivering pilot training on behalf of the NATO Alliance from dozens of countries from around the world. 15 Wing is home to the Snowbirds, and Moose Jaw is pleased that the Canadian government is looking at a new jet to replace the aging tutors, at an estimated cost of $775 million.
In January 2015 CAE announced it has signed an agreement to acquire Bombardier’s Military Aviation Training division for around $19.8 million. CAE, a simulation training system company, says it wants to expand its offering into support for live flying training of future military pilots. The transaction, expected to conclude by the end of 2015, will make CAE the prime contractor responsible for the NFTC program, which involves base facilities, delivering ground-school classroom and simulator training, and support of live flying training. Bombardier will then divest itself of its pilot training responsibilities.
