NORCAT relocates in Timmins

Training centre has moved to larger space
The Timmins location of NORCAT has relocated to a new office, giving the training and innovation centre more space.

The Timmins office of NORCAT has relocated to a new space.

A satellite location of the Sudbury-based innovation and training centre, NORCAT Timmins has moved to a larger office in Porcupine, an eastern neighbourhood of Timmins.

The move was required after the organization outgrew its previous space, marking NORCAT Timmins’ second move since it opened its doors in 2014.

NORCAT made the announcement in a Sept. 9 social media post.

“The substantial growth is also attributed to additional offerings, including human capital and training strategy design and development through NORCAT Advisory, and capabilities to support clients beyond the Northern Ontario markets, including Quebec, Saskatchewan and Alberta.”

From this location, NORCAT offers a range of training programs for workers in mining and other industries, including surface miner common core, basic mill process operator, working at heights, and more.

NORCAT first expanded to Timmins in 2014, setting up on the campus of Collège Boréal, itself a satellite location of the Sudbury college.

Four years later, the organization moved into a stand-alone office on McIntyre Road that previously housed the city’s Chamber of Commerce.

Its newest space is located in an office complex across the road from Northern College.
