Message from the Mayor of Fort Smith 

Education in the north is a priority for leaders in every community and for their residents and for families across the Territory. 

We are pleased to support the growth of Aurora College as a degree-granting polytechnic university and how this will help us as a Territory; from educating our students, to growing our intellectual capital in every community as well as fostering innovation and success.

Your input on the vision for the future of education in the NWT is essential. Please take the time to review the information attached on the progress that has been made to date, what the next steps are for the GNWT and for Aurora College.

Thank you for taking the time to stay informed and to be involved in the process. 


Mayor Lynn Napier-Buckley
