NVIT celebrates 40th anniversary with new strategic plan, partnerships 

Nicola Valley Institute of Technology recently celebrated its 40th anniversary. The celebration included a grand gala night with the institute’s contributors and partners, where members of NVIT’s community engaged in an evening of reflection, gratitude, and recognition for NVIT’s journey. NVIT highlighted several key developments that are driving the institution forward: A new strategic plan immersed in the Nlaka’pamuxcin and Nsyilxcən Indigenous languages that will drive NVIT’s growth and impact, a renewed commitment to Indigenous Emergency Support Services; and a strategic partnership with the BC Aboriginal Child Care Society that will address Indigenous Early Learning & Child Care workforce needs. The celebration also included a presentation from Indigenous singer Susan Aglukark, who shared her story of resilience as she became an internationally acclaimed artist.
