McDonald’s trainees to get college diploma credits


McDonald’s Canada says employees training to become managers can now receive the first year of course credits towards a college business diploma at any of the province’s 24 public colleges in a first-of-its-kind agreement struck with Colleges Ontario.

The fast food giant estimates the partnership will translate into tuition cost savings for eligible workers of up to $4,500, or half, since it takes two years to get a business or business administration diploma at Ontario colleges.

“We’re proud to offer our employees training and opportunities that build skills relevant in today’s world and that they can take with them well into their futures,” said Sharon Ramalho, Chief People Officer of McDonald’s Canada.
