New programs offered this year in Burns Lake through NVIT
The Nicola Valley Institute of Technology has increased their programming in the Lakes District this year.
President Ken Tourand says it’s a part of their long-standing relationship with the Lake Babine Nation.
“Quite often we do a lot of First Nations language courses. This year is the first time we’ve been up here with three courses.”
The programs include a first-year degree program in chemical addictions, a cultural assessor certificate and a camp cook program in Burns Lake.
Tourand says the college has an Aboriginal mandate and works with First Nations across the country.
