NLC to construct new skilled trades training centre with $33M funding injection

August 24, 2016

Northern Lights College is set to replace a World War II-era structure with a new skilled trades training centre, thanks to a combined $33M investment from the federal and provincial governments. The project will prepare Indigenous learners for careers in the skilled trades by increasing apprenticeship enrolment and addressing barriers to student success. “There is a consistent demand for well‑trained, qualified tradespeople throughout the northeast,” said NLC President Bryn Kulmatycki. “A new trades training facility will help Northern Lights train exceptionally prepared, job‑ready graduates who are ready to serve in our local communities in a range of sectors.” Canada | NationTalk | Dawson Creek Mirror | NLC
