June 1, 2010

Mining company Vale has contributed $500,000 to Cambrian College to fund outreach, recruitment, and educational initiatives aimed at supporting Aboriginal students in their exploration of and transition into post-secondary programs. Vale recently made a $2-million donation to fund a mobile trades training trailer, developed by Cambrian as a way to bring classroom education to those who find it difficult to come to classrooms in Sudbury. The trailer was recently deployed in Kirkland Lake, where it was used to train apprentices from the Matachewan Aboriginal Access to Training for Mining Jobs Strategy. Cambrian News Release
