More support is available for post-secondary students in Prince George.
The College of New Caledonia (CNC) and the CNC Students' Union (CNCSU) have announced the launch of its COVID-19 Emergency Student Fund, available to domestic, Indigenous and international students.
After the announcement on April 2 from Minister of Advanced Education Skills and Training Melanie Mark of emergency support for domestic students at every B.C. post-secondary school, the college has been working on a system to give to all of its students.
