NorQuest, UWinnipeg, UVic launch new programs

NorQuest College, the University of Winnipeg, and the University of Victoria recently launched new programs. NorQuest and The CommAlert Group partnered to launch a free, four-month IndTech program for Indigenous youth who are interested in a career in technology. The program teaches technical skills in areas such as data management, software literacy, and teamwork, and includes a paid internship. UWinnipeg has launched three new Indigenous language certificates that each teach proficiency in a local Indigenous language and provide students with the historical context on language revitalization. UVic has announced the co-creation and launch of a custom MBA in Indigenous Reconciliation, which is being developed through a partnership with the BC Association of Aboriginal Friendship Centres (BCAAFC). The MBA will have a closed-enrolment model with students selected by BCAAFC and BC.
