Posted on December 19th, 2016

The Nicola Valley Institute of Technology has been granted an $8.9 million investment that will create jobs, expand research, and foster innovation through a new Centre of Excellence in Sustainability.

NVIT is the only Aboriginal public post-secondary institution in B.C. and offers a range of education and training programs. The new Centre reflects the growing importance of investing in education that considers the health and well-being of students and future graduates.

The funding will support the construction of a new Centre of Excellence in Sustainability at NVIT. The new building will provide innovative lab space, demonstrate solar and geo-exchange technologies, and house a new teaching kitchen and greenhouse.

The project will support a new culinary arts program, as well as expand upon current and new activities within NVIT’s trades, environmental resources technology, and law enforcement preparation programs.
