Northern Road School

Good Roads’ Training Support Program

Boost your career while improving your local roads with Northern Road School! This fall, Good Roads will be hosting courses in Northern Ontario to prepare your road crews for everything they need to know about road construction and maintenance.

The seats in these courses are subsidized by the Government of Ontario to help reduce the barriers to training faced by Ontario’s Northern, Rural, and Remote communities.

Good Roads will be holding a Northern Road School in Sault Ste Marie from Oct 25 – Nov 1, 2023. Our funding allows us to cover the cost of registration and 3 nights hotel accommodation for successful applicants.
