EduCativ Posted July 31, 2020 Share Posted July 31, 2020 The Nicola Valley Institute of Technology (NVIT) is BC’s Aboriginal public post-secondary institute. NVIT was formed as a private institute in 1983 by the founding bands of Coldwater, Nooaitch, Shackan, Upper Nicola, and Lower Nicola. Working from a basement in the downtown core of Merritt, three instructors taught thirteen students the basics of what is now our Environmental Resources Technology program. The program was taught in an environment that promoted traditional ways and fostered student success, a vision that sticks with NVIT today. Gradually building its program offerings to address Aboriginal community needs with programs like Social Work, Environmental Resources Technology, and Aboriginal Community Economic Development, NVIT became and remained a unique and vital public post-secondary institution in Canada.
