YukonU, ISC announce centralized delivery model for water and wastewater support programs

Yukon University and Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) have announced a new program delivery model for their water and wastewater training and support programs. Delivery of the Circuit Rider Training Program (CRTP) and Yukon Water and Wastewater Operator Program (YWWOP) will be centralized within the university. The move will allow for increased research opportunities, increased First Nations participation in the programs, and improved support for First Nations leaders and managers overseeing water and wastewater systems management. “By assuming delivery of the Circuit Rider Training Program, Yukon University is supporting First Nations to build capacity and foster strong, healthy communities,” said federal Minister of Indigenous Services Patty Hajdu. “This federal investment of over $400,000 will support water and wastewater operator training that will benefit the greater Yukon region.”
