The B.C. government is investing $267,639 this year for programs and activities that enhance aboriginal learners’ experiences at North Island College.
Including NIC, 11 post-secondary institutions have received a total of $4.4 million this year to support aboriginal service plans. This funding will allow them to continue their work with aboriginal communities, organizations and institutes to develop and deliver culturally relevant supports, programs and courses that bolster aboriginal learners’ education and employment goals.
The aboriginal service plan will also provide additional funds to five programs, including:
• Elder In Residence — 50-per-cent increase, Comox Valley Campus – $42,958.
