The program runs Feb. 2 27. Classes are scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday. Funding for WiNG is provided by the Government of Canada through the Canada-British Columbia Job Fund. Eligible unemployed or underemployed participants must meet certain criteria, including being both legally entitled to work in Canada and a B.C.
