New Building for CNC in Vanderhoof
Vanderhoof, B.C. – A huge day for CNC in Vanderhoof.
The provincial government has announced $1.7 million in funding for a new education and training facility there.
The Province purchased several buildings that sit on the 2.38 acres of land to make it possible.
The new campus will consolidate a variety of programs including trades to one location in a much newer building which is located on 139 East Fir Street and has more than an acre that can be developed in the future depending on demand and approvals.
“Well obviously, we want to make sure there is great capacity to train students closer to home,” said Prince George-Valemount MLA Shirley Bond. “And one of the areas Vanderhoof has been concerned about is the fact that they have three separate buildings there with difficult circumstances to teach and learn in.”
She says the $1.7 million means they will be able to amalgamate the training space on campus.
Students should be able to use the new building in fall, 2018, once the appropriate re-zoning and renovation work is complete.
“Our college is very responsive to the communities that we serve,” said CNC president Henry Reiser. “We are excited to be investing in Vanderhoof, and re-locating to the heart of the community. It will be a welcoming place for our students, community members and partners.”
