It was an honour to attend the ribbon cutting for Sbalyan 'U'to "Eagle's Nest", a 9-unit Rapid Housing multiplex on-reserve in Nazko First Nation. Funding was providing by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) Société canadienne d'hypothèques et de logement(SCHL) and Indigenous Services Canada. Thank you to our partners NRB Modular Solutions and the many people that worked on this project for its duration. Thank you especially to Nazko First Nation for the warm welcome!
Day one of the First Nations Youth Training Program started today. Welcome to all the participants who traveled from across BC to be here. This six-week training program has been operating since 2009. It's a unique training program that combines work experience and short term certificate training that allows participants to transition quickly into employment. Funding for this session is provided from the Government of Canada, through the Canada-BC Workforce Development Agreement.
