Highlights of the region
Understand the history
Northern Lights College serves the northern third of the province of British Columbia. Our region covers approximately 325,000 square kilometres and shares a border with the province of Alberta and the Yukon territory.
These are the traditional lands of the Cree, Dene, Dunne-Za, Kaska, Saulteau, Tse’khene, Tahltan, and Tlingit people. To protect these lands, several First Nations signed Treaty 8 in the early 20th century.
Today, approximately 7% of the region’s population are Indigenous peoples. At NLC, we recognize that we are guests in this territory and seek to uphold values that honour and respect these storied lands.
