The college says this will help modernize their current building and equipment.
The province will giving $11.87 million towards the project while the federal government will give $6.31-million.
NWCC President Ken Burt says it’s great that two levels of government are able to chip in the money.

The province also announced an additional $187,00 to purchase new equipment and $1.6-million to go toward the training programs.
