Our Values

Our History

In 2006, letters patent were filed, and on March 30th of that year, Georgina Trades Training Incorporated (GTTI) was born. There were many people, agencies, organizations, and institutions that worked diligently to bring this idea to life. The Story of the North, a research project carried out by the York Region District School Board, provided the background data needed, and a mission and vision was established to provide education and training opportunities in an area where other resources were not available. GTTI became a reality thanks to the involvement of two school boards, a municipality, funding agencies, a chamber of commerce, and dedicated individuals and volunteers.

Since its inception, GTTI has become much broader in its scope and reach, consistently adapting to workforce trends, employer needs, and community demands in order to continue to offer a diverse variety of training courses. Though the local community of Georgina remains an essential client base, the organization has also expanded its geographical scope of service delivery, providing programs to students and businesses throughout the Regional Municipality of York, Durham, the Greater Toronto Area and beyond.

As a result of this evolution, in 2023 GTTI completed a rebranding, including a new logo and a new business name: Skills Training Centre. This will ensure the name better reflects its broader program mandate and geographical reach.
