New education initiative provides crucial opportunities for rural Albertans

February 8, 2019

Campus Alberta Central, the regional rural education service partner between Red Deer College and Olds College, has established a presence in the Alberta town of Sundre. Iaian Park, Business Development Manager for RDC’s School of Continuing Education, told the Sundre Roundup that such initiatives are crucial because Alberta’s potentially deadly winter storms can prohibit rural people from accessing educational or career paths they would otherwise pursue. “The establishment of a post-secondary learning centre will not only bring about local workforce development, but will also in turn increase investment within the community,” added Jon Allan, Sundre’s Economic Development Officer. The Roundup adds that CAC will consult with the people of Sundre before finalizing its course offerings. Sundre Roundup (AB)
