Your Career

The Supply Chain industry has been one of the key drivers of economic prosperity in the province of Ontario. Humber College is also advantageously located in one of Canada's most significant supply chain hubs owing to its proximity to the Toronto Pearson airport, as well as major highways. This region has the unique opportunity for supply chain organizations to establish and expand their operations which will translate into a need for skilled supply chain professionals. Supply chain employers in the region are currently facing a shortage of skilled professionals in Operations, Logistics as well as Planning. As a participant of the Supply Chain Bridging Program, you will be able to upgrade your skills in these areas. Upon completion of the program, previous graduates have secured jobs as Supply Chain Managers, Operations Managers, Logisitics Coordinators, Procurement Specialists, Inventory Planners, Inventory Managers and Supply Chain Analysts.
