College of Northern Canada to open Yellowknife campus

Yellowknife is set to have a new private college: The College of Northern Canada. College of Northern Canada President Dr Chehrazade Aboukinane said that the “non-traditional” institution will use a “co-teaching mode” wherein Indigenous educators regularly spend time with students in the classroom. The college will offer programming across its variety of centres of academic study; some classes are currently being offered online and preparations are underway for the grand opening of its physical campus. While some community members are supportive of the new college, CBC highlighted several concerns about the college, including the lack information about the college’s programming and the fact that its programs are ineligible for student financial aid.
