$28 million for trades training facilities at Okanagan College

September 24, 2012

The BC government announced Friday a $28-million investment to expand and renovate trades training facilities at Okanagan College's Kelowna campus. In addition to the renovation and retrofitting of existing facilities, a 2-storey addition will more than double the size of the Trades Complex, providing needed student space and innovative classrooms for trades and technology programs specifically focused on skills development, training, and upgrading. Trades training at the Kelowna campus has more than doubled over the past decade, requiring the addition of 2 off-site leased facilities. The renewal project will bring more than 750 students back to the college's main campus. BC News Release
