Selkirk College has officially launched its $18.9M Silver King Campus renewal project with a groundbreaking ceremony and welcomed a joint federal-provincial investment of over $16M towards the project. The project will see the repurposing of three existing trades buildings, as well as the construction of a student commons building that includes a new cafeteria, multi-purpose open study area, student services offices, and Aboriginal gathering place. “This investment in the Silver King Campus renewal project at Selkirk College will help to create improved learning space for students of the trades and related technical training,” said federal Minister of Innovation, Science & Economic Development Navdeep Bains. “This will mean continued success for students and will ensure Selkirk College is best equipped for the future.” Selkirk is also receiving $187K in funding towards the purchase of trades equipment.
