The Knowledge Society is a learning program designed for high school students, aged 13 to 17, focusing on emerging technologies. The program’s expansion to Ottawa aims to foster more Canadian talent in science and technology.
“Our mission is to be in every major Canadian city in the next five years. For us, Ottawa is the perfect springboard for us to achieve that,” said Navid Nathoo, co-founder of TKS. “We’re also looking to build a strong relationship with the Canadian government. We believe that we can drive positive change locally, nationally, and globally, and influence policy regarding education, workforce readiness, and closing the skill gap. Canada is a leading country in innovation, and we want to continue to be a part of that.”
