Camosun, VCC announce programming to support Indigenous individuals’ career development

Camosun College and Vancouver Community College have each announced new pathways to help Indigenous individuals pursue careers in new fields. Camosun is launching a 12-week, tuition-free Indigenous Peoples in Technology Pathway that covers topics in computer science and civil, mechanical, and electrical engineering. The program offers wraparound supports such as personal protective equipment, transportation, and counselling services. VCC will be launching a tuition-free adult upgrading pathway for Indigenous learners that will act as a low-barrier introduction to postsecondary education. The program will include cultural workshops and Elder visits with the aim of fostering a safe learning environment for Indigenous students. Both programs are supported by funding from the Government or British Columbia.
