Tahltan

Galore Creek signed a Participation Agreement with Tahltan in 2006 which we continue to implement today. Our joint Environmental Performance Committee and monthly technical working sessions ensure alignment, and that Tahltan is heard, informed, and involved through all phases of Project development.

Galore Creek is committed to providing lasting benefits to communities. We actively invest in education and training for Tahltan students, and cultural and language programs for youth.

Eligibility

Academic bursaries are granted to students enrolled in a university degree program or university transfer courses (towards a degree program) or a two-year diploma program at a community college.

Non-Academic & trades bursaries are granted to students 18 years and older, enrolled in any accredited post-secondary course or programs (that are not associated with a university degree program). Students younger than 18 may be considered if they are accepted into an accredited trades program. Eligible programs also include BC Adult Graduation Diplomas and General Education Development Certificates.

Bursaries are awarded based on academic achievement, community involvement, as well as educational and career goals. Bursaries are not restricted to educational programs directly related to mining, but special consideration is given to applicants whose career goals relate to the mining industry.
