Northwest Community College (NWCC), is a provincially funded post-secondary institution in northwest British Columbia, founded in 1975, situated within a rural and remote context. For more than five years, the College has embarked on a journey of transformational change to enhance access and success of First Nation and Métis learners. Many Métis people have moved into the northwest region in past decades and are part of the recently organized BC Métis Nation.
