Northern Opportunities receives Governor General’s Canadian Leadership Conference recognition

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Northern Opportunities, which is a partnership including BC Hydro, BCIT, CNRL, Chalo School/Fort Nelson First Nation, Encana, the Ministry of Education, NENAS, NDIT, Northern Lights College, Shell, Spectra, and Peace River South and Fort Nelson School Districts (59 and 81, respectively) as well as School District 60 (Peace River North), was recognized by The Governor General’s Canadian Leadership Conference at the beginning of June.

“The mission of Northern Opportunities is to build ‘a strong and vibrant workforce for northeast B.C.’ by developing educational programs and opportunities that empower the young people of northeast B.C. to prepare and train for occupations locally so that when they enter the workforce, they are equipped to do so locally.  Students are trained in the north to stay in the north.”

Northern Opportunities received a certificate in appreciation of their contribution to the 2017 Governor General’s Canadian Leadership Conference through hosting a study group and sharing insights to help better understand the country.

“Delegates from across the country travelled to our school district to learn about the Northern Opportunities partnerships, a unique blend of industry and educational stakeholders.”
