In a decision aimed at bringing more students and high paying jobs to Sault Ste. Marie.
City council agreed to partner with Sault College on their new engineering program which was announced MPP Ross Romano last week.
In a presentation to the city council, the college showed how partnering with Humber College helps the city.
The plan involves bringing 40 students each year to the city which means in four years time 120 new students will be in town.
They estimate the program could bring up to 15 new high-paying jobs to the community.
Councillors received assurances from city staff the money could only be spent for this program at the college.
Although the $4 million dollar plan does not have all the financials in place. The college expects to make an announcement in the near future.
The money comes from the economic development fund for this investment.
