Parkland College, Yorkton Tribal Council (YTC), and Indigenous Services Canada have partnered to deliver an Intro to Water Operators program. The program, designed for both those new to the field of study as well as professionals looking to upskill, provides foundational training in water and wastewater disciplines. The program runs for 19 weeks and includes both online training and weekly classroom training in Yorkton. Eight local First Nation communities have been involved in the initiative. “By providing the right tools and direction, we can build a prosperous and self-sufficient future for our Indigenous Peoples,” said YTC Director of Adult Education and PES Advisor Frank Keshane. The training is possible thanks to a teaching partnership between Parkland and ATAP Infrastructure Management Ltd. Parkland Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
