What our Alumni Say

  • Luke Friesen crop

    There aren’t many jobs where you can be outdoors 90 percent of your time and see different places. I’ve gotten to experience some absolutely beautiful places in B.C. that most people wouldn’t even consider going to because they are that remote, or just areas that aren’t on the general horizon of the public. I work with a helicopter quite a bit, and that’s awesome. You can’t beat that.

  • Wearing your button blanket with pride

    CNC was the last place I thought I would begin to discover my cultural roots. I learned to embrace who I am and incorporate that into every ounce of my being. Whether it’s parenting, studying or working, I learned the importance of Indigenizing my process.
