The Ontario government and the private sector are spending $2.4 million on a new program to increase the number of new media graduates and to help match students with HR-strapped companies. Dubbed OnTarget, the initiative will officially launch next month in Toronto. By year two, organizers hope to expand into metropolitan Toronto before moving operations across the province in year three. The program will receive $1.1 million from the Ontario government’s Interactive Digital Media Fund, with the balance coming from corporate in-kind donations.
