The Manager of the Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technologies Myrna Ewing told the Flin Flon and District Chamber of Commerce yesterday the Institute has been in Creighton for almost two years. She says their strategic plan includes to champion student success, enhance institutional strength and foster strategic stakeholder relations. She says their role in Saskatchewan’s future is to create work ready achievers who appreciate the value of learning now and in the future, to equip their students with the skills they need to succeed and to provide First Nations learners with tools they need to play a vital role in Saskatchewan’s future.
Ewing adds First Nations are a growing and valuable resource since they will be 30 percent of the Saskatchewan population by 2030. She says they have already had 456 students of which 73 percent are First Nations and 134 have found employment adding they are open to everyone.
