Canada, British Columbia invest in infrastructure at Northern Lights College
$33.02-million investment will create jobs, expand research and foster innovation
The joint federal-provincial investment was announced today by the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, and the Honourable Mike Bernier, B.C. Minister of Education and MLA for Peace River South, on behalf of the Honourable Andrew Wilkinson, B.C. Minister of Advanced Education.
The Government of Canada's Innovation Agenda aims to make this country a global centre for innovation - one that creates jobs, drives growth across all industries and improves the lives of all Canadians. This investment exemplifies that vision in action and will help create the well-paying, middle-class jobs of tomorrow.
The funding will enable Northern Lights College to build a new training centre for its skilled trades programs. The new building will replace the World War II-era structure currently in use.
