The COVID-19 pandemic has forced British Columbians to adapt to the various restrictions it brings, including changes to the delivery of training. The shift to remote learning or delivery of training through the internet is here to stay. To support Métis learners and put them in the best position to succeed, MNBC’s STEPS has secured a partnership with Best Buy Canada to deliver laptops to learners.

STEPS can now coordinate with Best Buy Canada and its logistics partner to deliver a basic learning laptop, valued at $650 directly to eligible Métis learners. Métis learners may also choose to receive the cash equivalent value to invest in the learning tool of their choice.
