Building Conservation Training Program
Students will benefit from a $30,000 provincial grant to the College of New Caledonia in Quesnel for the development of the Building Conservation Trades Training Program, announced by heritage minister Bill Bennett on April 8. The funding is being provided as part of the government’s partnership with the College of New Caledonia.
The Building Conservation Trades Training Program is a heritage-focused curriculum that incorporates online eLearning, classroom instruction and hands-on field experience at various sites throughout B.C., including Cottonwood House Historic Site and Barkerville Historic Town.
The College of New Caledonia will partner with School District 28 and Barkerville Heritage Trust to deliver the Building Conservation Trades Training Program. The program will be supported and developed in consultation with the provincial Heritage Branch, the University of Victoria Cultural Resource Management Program, Parks Canada and other partners. It will also be linked to other similar programs including the School District’s Heritage Preservations Trades Skills 12A, dual crediting, career programming and adult education programming.
