BCIT launches Rivers Institute

February 24, 2009

Through a $1-million donation from environmental philanthropist Rudy North, the British Columbia Institute of Technology has established the Rivers Institute, the first of its kind in the province. The institute will conduct state-of-the-art river-related research, as well as work to increase public awareness about the importance of waterways. The Rivers Institute will play a leading science-based role in key management issues while partnering with existing programs at BCIT, such as Canada's first stand-alone Ecological Restoration degree.
