Indigenous-Focused Training Coming to the North

Brittany Webster

Indigenous-focused training is coming to the North thanks to the Haisla Nation Council.

An invite has been extended to the Nicola Valley Institute of Technology to open a Northern Campus at the Kitimat Valley Institute.

Haisla Chief Councillor Crystal Smith says this project will open up many more training opportunities a little closer to home. "Our only option for our people here in Haisla territory is to go to Terrace for any type of training. So it's just going to broader the context of what's available and what our people can have access to without leaving home."

Opportunities from business administration to environmental studies will be available at the Northern campus, as well as training courses for skills in demand with the LNG Canada project.

The Northern campus is also in partnership with BCIT.
