B.C. Premier Christy Clark put smiles on a bunch of faces at Northwest Community College today with the announcement the provincial Liberal government was investing $465,000 for training opportunities in northwest B.C. through NWCC.
“The most positive thing we can do to ensure continued prosperity in the Northwest is to make sure our training opportunities match industry needs,” Premier Clark said.
The funding is part of a province-wide $7 million one-time cash infusion targeting short-term training.
“We thank the government for investing in our students and our communities,” said Dr. Denise Henning, president and CEO of Northwest Community College.
“These dollars help Northwest Community College ensure northerners are stepping into economies in this region with skills that are relevant and responsive to industry needs.”
