The donation to NWCC will provide money destined towards development of a mobile trades vehicle, providing for the opportunity to bring training to a large number of communities throughout the region.

Northwest Community College has become a main training location for the Minerals industry for the province in the last few years, with the Smithers campus of NWCC home to the School of Exploration and Mining.
