AMOUNT OF MONEY CANADA IS SPEND­ING TO TEACH KIDS TO CODE Cana­dian of­fi­cials have re­cently an­nounced that the gov­ern­ment will spend $50 mil­lion AUD fund­ing a new a ini­tia­tive that aims to teach kids to code. This pro­gram, ti­tled CanCode, plans to dish out the money to cer­ti­fied non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions that will ide­ally help over half a mil­lion Cana­dian chil­dren (from kin­der­garten up) to learn dig­i­tal skills. The coun­try’s Min­is­ter of In­no­va­tion thinks this will “teach young peo­ple how to work as a team to solve dif­fi­cult prob­lems in cre­ative ways” and help pro­duce “the next great in­no­va­tors and en­trepreneurs”.
