NorQuest and Edmonton Oilers partner on hospitality training institute

October 3, 2014

NorQuest College and the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation (EOCF) have partnered to create the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation Hospitality Institute. The new institute will be a hands-on training centre for a wide range of fields, including guest services, service industry operations, and event delivery. Programs will be relevant and customized for Alberta’s hospitality industry and will be designed to open doors for many inner-city residents and at-risk youth in northern AB. EOCF committed $1.5 M for the institute, which will create 100 annual bursaries of $1,000 for learners requiring financial support. A portion of the funds will also go towards a new training facility and kitchen in NorQuest’s Centre for Learning, scheduled to open in 2017. NorQuest News | Edmonton Journal
