BCIT has a mandate to partner with industry, government, business, and other post-secondary institutes. These partnerships have beneficial social, economic, and environmental impact both locally and nationally. For example, we’ve partnered with the Squamish Nation Education Department to jointly deliver an innovative First Nations Ecological Restoration training program to introduce Squamish Nation students to the theory and practice of ecological restoration. We’ve worked with Northern Lights College to strengthen their Instrumentation Mechanic program, assessing their equipment needs, providing course materials, allowing their instructors to shadow BCIT Instrumentation Mechanic instructors, and delivering apprenticeship training in Fort St. John, BC. And we are partnering with the provincial and federal governments to form a coordinated approach to apprenticeship training in 10 trades, ensuring apprentices have their certification recognized across the country, no matter where they took their training.
