Aurora College Partnerships

Aurora College works with a large number of Aboriginal groups, government and non-government departments, and business and industry partners to ensure the timely delivery of relevant and high quality post-secondary programming throughout the Northwest Territories.

Programs delivered and funded through partnership arrangements form a key area of college operations. These programs may focus on immediate training needs, but may also address reoccurring or demand program requirements.

Please contact the registrar at your nearest Campus location or the Adult Educator at your Community Learning Center to find out more information about these programs.

Some of our partnerships include:
The University of the Arctic

The University of the Arctic is a cooperative network of universities, colleges, and other organizations committed to higher education and research in the North. Our members share resources, facilities, and expertise to build post-secondary education programs that are relevant and accessible to northern students.

Our overall goal is to create a strong, sustainable circumpolar region by empowering northerners and northern communities through education and shared knowledge.

National Research and Education Network (NREN)

The National Research and Education Network (NREN) is an essential collective of infrastructure, tools, and people that bolsters Canadian leadership in research, education and innovation. CANARIE and its twelve provincial and territorial partners form Canada’s NREN. We connect Canada’s researchers, educators and innovators to each other and to data, technology and colleagues around the world.

Aurora College represents the Northwest Territories in the NREN.  The NWT connection to CANARIE enables Aurora College research sites, campuses, and learning centres, as well as schools, hospitals and health centres, and other government sites throughout the NWT to access the high-speed, high-capacity CANARIE Network across Canada.

Mine Training Society

The Mine Training Society (MTS) is a non-profit society of Aboriginal, industry and government representatives established to promote, coordinate and facilitate the delivery of training programs to meet the needs of the NWT mining labour force. The MTS also plays an important role in mining career development and awareness.

Aurora College and the MTS have collaborated on dozens of training projects since the inception of the MTS, and together the two parties continue to work with each other and other partners to meet the training needs of the NWT’s mining sector.

NWT Institute of Supply Chain Management Association

In partnership with the NWT Institute of Supply Chain Management Association (SCMA), Aurora College delivers the SCMA Diploma in Supply Management Training Program. SCMA is the principal source of training, education and professional development for supply chain management professionals in Canada, and the Supply Management Training program is intended for entry level and intermediate-level practitioners who require a technical competence in supply management. The training will also be of interest to others seeking knowledge of supply management at the introductory level. The Supply Management program is comprised of 4 courses and 6 seminars.
