Webcampus is an advanced form of technology which offers UFCW Canada members “The Freedom to Learn” in English and French, free of charge.
This interactive learning program is designed in partnership with Mohawk Community College. One of the benefits of this program is that the credits can actually be used to earn community college credits once successfully completed. We have more the 80 courses to choose from. These courses range everything from computer courses to understanding the history of the unions. By using webCampus, you enable yourself to learn at your own personal pace at the time of your convenience from any computer device with an Internet connection. It is not a prerequisite to have prior experience with a computer, nor do you have to own a computer. The course is available to you at any location with a computer, for instance, a library, computer lab, friend or relatives house.
