January 14, 2020

The Seven Generations Education Institute has received $2.25M in funding to increase rural Northwestern Ontario residents' access to postsecondary education. The Connected Classroom project, funded by the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation, will use the funding to purchase and install telepresence immersive technology videoconferencing equipment in order to connect students from Seven Generations' four campuses with Lakehead University's campus. "The support from NOHFC will enable our students to access diverse programming not typically offered in our area," said Seven Generations CEO Brent Tookenay. ON (ON )
