Nisga'a Students to receive electronic tablets as part of COVID-19 response

Nisga'a students in Prince Rupert, Port Edward will be able to access online learning opportunities with some new equipment as the Gitmaxmak'ay Nisga'a Society continues with its response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The program to provide Amazon Fire 16GB tablets to support Nisga'a youth as part of the delivery of virtual education was announced last Friday and is available to those registered Nisga'a students who qualified for the educational grant this past September.

To secure your order you are asked to contact the Gitmaxmak'ay Nisga'a Society.

You can reach them by email at or by phone at 250-627-1595

The program is designed for registered Nisga'a youth in Prince Rupert, Port Edward and outside of BC, the deadline to submit your request is set for Friday, June 5th.

Learn More about the program from the Gitmaxmak'ay Facebook page.

The Gitmaxmak'ay Society plans make for the second large scale distribution of computer equipment for local students, last week we made note of a program for Lax Kw'alaams students which saw the Port of Prince Rupert and Lax Kw'alaams Band provide funding for laptops for Coast Tsimshian Academy students.
