A pilot program is being launched at the NSCC Burridge Campus in Yarmouth this winter that will give women the foundation to start a career on the water in the commercial fisheries.

Applications are now being accepted for the Women’s Fishing Master Class 4 Pilot Program, which begins on Jan. 6, 2020.
Mary Thompson, principal of the NSCC Burridge and Shelburne campuses, says the program came about after she was approached by Angie Green, president of the Yarmouth Area Chamber of Commerce. Green had been contacted by a number of women interested in pursuing a career in the fishery.

“It’s an area a lot of our women are interested in.
