Beaver Lake Cree Nation to construct new education facility

Beaver Lake Cree Nation will be constructing a new education facility thanks to a $16.1M investment from the Government of Canada. The new high school will be constructed right in the nation’s community and will offer cultural programming, career training, and academic and emotional support services in addition to provincial curriculum. The space will also be used for adult education programs. The net-zero facility is set in a natural wooded site with access to outdoor learning spaces. “This new school signifies that Beaver Lake Cree Nation is not only modernizing, but blazing a path forward into the future,” said Beaver Lake Cree Nation Councillor Cole Gladue. “Our students will be able to enjoy a brand new facility where they will have a safe, inclusive, and culturally relevant learning environment.”
