Lakes District First Nation Post-Secondary Institute Development

Lake Babine Nation, along with the other five First Nations in the Lakes District, have been working towards establishing a First Nations Post-Secondary Institute. We are at the developmental stage of this initiative at this time. Further, this initiative is currently under the umbrella of the Burns Lake Native Development Corporation (BLNDC). Key initiatives will potentially include:

  • Essential Skills Centre
    • Purpose: to prepare students for entry into a Licensed Practical Nursing program and further education/training in other career areas.
    • The Prince George Nechako Employment and Training Association (PGNEATA) will be assisting our fledging institute with the Lake District Essential Skills Centre being a pilot of their centre that is currently up and running in Prince George.
  • Licensed Practical Nursing Program
    • There is currently a move to begin phasing out Community Health Representative in First Nations communities.

Monty Palmantier, Education Director, and Brenda Michell-Joseph, Education Coordinator, are representatives at this table.
