CBT has announced a new partnership with Selkirk College and College of the Rockies

The CBT has announced a new 6 million dollar partnership between the Trust, College of the Rockies and Selkirk College.

President and CEO Johnny Strilaeff  says workforce development is one of the CBT's focus, and the colleges are natural partners.

The trust will be providing each college with 3 million dollars over three years to grow program offerings, diversify and enrich programs, and enhance the overall student experience.

Strilaeff says it's an exciting opportunity, because they'll be sitting with the colleges at the table to talk about opportunities, to enrich the experience of students.

The partnership will support initiatives that are outside the scope of current government funding.
