COTR breaks ground for Aboriginal gathering place

September 29, 2010

The College of the Rockies held a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday for its new Aboriginal gathering place, which will be constructed primarily by the college's trades training students. Once completed, the octagonal structure will incorporate green technology, and will feature large open space for cultural and ceremonial events, offices, and a fully equipped kitchen. The gathering place is one of 27 being built at public PSE institutions across BC through a $13.6-million investment from the province. BC News Release
