June 18, 2019

College of New Caledonia, Prince George Nechako Aboriginal Employment and Training Association (PGNAETA), Industry Training Authority (ITA), and Prince George Brain Injured Group (PGBIG) have partnered on a trades Exploration Program for underemployed and unemployed individuals with brain injuries. The program helps those individuals to explore trades occupations as a carpenter, professional cook, and automotive service technician. “The concept and development of this program has been the result of genuine partnership among organizations who care about the needs of people in their community,” said ITA Interim COO Rod Bianchini. “We’re excited that participants have moved through the program with enthusiasm. They’re optimistic about their future in trades, and that makes this an investment in individuals and the economy.” CNC (BC)
