In June 2020, we launched a strategic planning project to set direction for the years 2021 to 2026.

There were several opportunities over the summer for people to provide input on what CNC needs to focus on for the next five years. An online survey open to all ran from June to September, followed by a series of online town halls including sessions for each of the communities where campuses are located – Burns Lake, Fort St. James, Mackenzie, Prince George, Quesnel and Vanderhoof.

So many of you took time to answer questions or chat with us. Thank you to everyone who participated, provided your views, and contributed to the future of CNC!

Based on this input, as well as an examination of external and post-secondary education trends, CNC’s Board of Directors has asked the institution to focus on four key areas when developing its strategic plan:
  • Learning that takes place over a person’s lifetime
  • Education and training that is innovative and relevant to CNC’s communities
  • An organization that is sustainable
  • Community and partnerships
The Board also asked that the needs of Aboriginal and International students/communities be incorporated across the four key areas.

It is hoped that you will consider a second opportunity to provide further input on the focus areas.

The following survey will provide a little more detail on each of these areas and will then ask you some questions about each one. We will use your input to help us flesh out each of these key areas and what specifically CNC needs to do over the next five years under each one.

You can skip any question, so feel free to answer only those questions that interest you.
Thanks for participating. The survey will take about 10 minutes to complete and must be submitted by Wednesday, January 20, 2021. Any personal identifying information will be protected and your responses will be anonymous.
CNC is honoured to work with the Aboriginal communities in this region, inclusive of the First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples.  We acknowledge the graciousness of the First Nations peoples in welcoming those seeking knowledge on their traditional territories.
