Canadian Alliance for Skills & Training in life sciences (CASTL)

Canadian Alliance for Skills and Training in Life Sciences (CASTL) is a unique partnership among Atlantic industry, academic, and government partners to address the significant future skills needs of the bioscience sector in Canada.

CASTL offers a highly innovative approach with multiple streams for learners to acquire the technical and professional skills, as well as the theoretical knowledge to be work-ready in the bioscience sector. Learners include students developing their careers, individual seeking to reskill for a career change, and workers upskilling to address the future needs of employers.

CASTL is one of 30 projects to receive funding from Future Skills Centre as part of a $37-million investment to help employers find workers with the skills they need, and to support Canadians in acquiring those in-demand skills.
