NLC opens $34.4M trades facility, giving students new opportunities to build strong future

October 16, 2018

Students from Dawson Creek, British Columbia and its surrounding region will be able to pursue trades training without having to move away from their families and community, thanks to a new $34.4M training centre at Northern Lights College. The 43,000-square-foot centre will provide space at the college for up to 96 new FTE students, and will house the school’s carpenter, millwright (industrial mechanic), plumber, welding and wind-turbine maintenance programs. $14.6M was provided through the Government of Canada's Post-Secondary Institutions Strategic Investment Fund, and $16.4M was provided by the Province of British Columbia. The remaining $3.4M was provided by NLC and donors. NLC | BC
