Northern Opportunities, a partnership group that School District 60 (Peace River North) is part of, received an award last week from The Governor General’s Canadian Leadership Conference.  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.

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.”

Other members of Northern Opportunities include: 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).
