Space to gather

NLC has Indigenous gathering spaces on the Chetwynd, Dawson Creek, Fort Nelson, and Fort St. John campuses. These are safe spaces that welcome all people, especially our First Nations, Metis, and Inuit students, staff, and elders to socialize, hold special events, and receive advocacy and support.
