Western Economic Diversification Canada
Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD) is a Foundation Building Partner in the Trades Exposure Centre project.
In 2015, Northern Lights received support from Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD) to enhance our Trades Exposure Program and build a facility that could provide hands-on trades training opportunities to students in Northern Lights and across Alberta. Federal funding of over $1.5 million through the Western Diversification Program enabled Northern Lights to develop a 4th Class Power Engineering program at Bonnyville Centralized High School, a service rig training course, and the Trades Exposure Centre.
For more than 25 years, Western Economic Diversification Canada has been working to diversify the western economy while improving the quality of life of western Canadians. WD aims to be a leader in building a strong competitive West by focusing on business development, innovation and community development.
