Hello my name is Robin,
I recently completed my 3rd year in the Visual Communication of Design Program (BDes) in the the Graphic Design Stream at ACAD. My program is very competitive with a heavy course load. METP has provided me support over the last year which has alleviated a lot of stress allowing me to focus on my studies. I have worked extremely hard to get to this point and I can’t thank METP enough for investing in me and my future.
I look forward to starting my fourth and final year in the fall. I will be researching and developing design solutions for real projects. This will include information design, editorial, digital media and interactive design.
Thank you Métis Nation BC!
Hello my name is Rosetta,
I recently graduated from the “Bachelor of Science - Regi stered Nurse” program at “Thompson Rivers University”, growing up I always knew I wanted a career in the health care field. I am currently working with the health authority in my region, working in a rural area has enabled me to nurse in a variet y of areas including medical, surgical, maternity and emergency.
“I am so grateful for this opportunity to attend university to b ecome a nurse and with the financial assistance from the Métis Employment and Training progra m I was able to achieve my goal.”
I started my education by upgrading my Biology in June of 2010 which was funded for me and shortly after that I started the Practical Nursing program January 2011. I received financial assistance from April 2011 until I completed the program. I had a few problems throughout my journey in this nursing program but I always had the staff to call and talk to and they were always there giving me the best advice I could ask for. I feel very special knowing I was able to receive this funding because I know I would have not been able to do a full time course and work enough hours to pay my bills. With the living expense allowance I was able to focus 100% off my time on my studies and not worry about how I was going to pay my rent.
I'm very thankful for the support MNBC provided to me. I couldn't have completed this program without funding and support when I really needed someone to talk to throughout this program.
I am looking for jobs as a practical nurse in the Lower Mainland but until then I am employed part-time with the Ministry of Children & Families working with children in care and I also part-time with a company called 'Nurse Next Door'.
Big thank you to the staff with the Metis Employment & Training Program for helping me achieve my goal of becoming a nurse.

When I decided to pursue a new career path as a Medical Device Reprocessor, I reached out to the MNBC in hopes they might be able to assist me. With their assistance I was put in a financial situation that allowed me to achieve my goals. Although I was very busy in my program, having less financial burdens allowed me to focus solely on my studies and I was able to do very well in my school course, as well as in my practicum that followed. At the end of my practicum, Royal Inland Hospital hired me as a casual employee, where I'm now working to gain a fulltime, permanent position. I love my job, and it wouldn't have been possible without MNBC!

Ryan's Story ‐ "Thank you to all who have helped me through my journey".
I started my apprenticeship in Prince Rupert taking my 1st, 2nd and 3rd year schooling in Northwest Community College. During the time of my apprenticeship I worked in Prince Rupert. When times were slow in our area, I travelled to Fort McMurray in a camp facility working as an apprentice.
I had some obstacles during my second year, as I had a lot of trouble with Employment Insurance (EI) and getting disqualified during my course. My family had to support me and it was very upsetting to my schooling. I had to go to an appeal process and with great difficulty and time consuming my family and I had to experience a lot of stress. In the end we won the case and I continued to finish my schooling for that year. I continued to work back in Prince Rupert for my final year before I ventured off to Victoria for my 4th and final year. I had to enroll in Victoria because my schooling didn’t offer the schedule I needed in Prince Rupert as now the school had moved to Terrace. They too were not offering the schedule I needed.
So off to Victoria to complete my last year at Camosun College. I did find that schooling and living in Victoria was very expensive as I have been very lucky to have had my 3 other years of schooling in my community. I finished my last and final year and I have also completed my IP (inter provincial) ticket which qualifies me to work in any Province in Canada.
I am presently working in Kitimat and I am a full Journeyman with a RED SEAL, since April 2014.
I would like to thank MNBC for sponsoring me during my Apprenticeship and Darcy Petuh from Northwest MNBC in Terrace, BC for endless hours of helping me get through this career. I couldn’t have made it through this alone. Darcy have given me a chance through MNBC to get where I am today, Thank you to all who have helped me through my journey.
Hello my name is Samantha,
After I graduated high school, I knew that I wanted to expand my schooling and better my future. After much thought I decided to apply for funding through the Métis Nation British Columbia. After finding out that I was approved I was beyond excited. I knew that I now had my chance to better myself and my future.
Thanks to the Metis Nation BC I have now completed a 5 month Applied Business Technology course. I am so excited to start my career and my new knowledge to good use.
Thank you Metis Nation BC!
