"Education is a key part of building a strong and resilient economy in our region. It provides people with the skills and knowledge necessary to take advantage of the thousands of jobs coming to our area," says SNCIRE Executive Director Rick Brouwer. "This is a huge opportunity for the individuals themselves, their families and our communities."
SNCIRE's annual general meeting is a chance for residents to hear the thoughts of leaders of our post-secondary institution as well as contribute their own ideas.
