Last Updated: June 15, 2017

Learning Initiatives for Rural and Northern BC (LIRN BC) is a collaborative approach to building on the capacities of rural, remote and Northern British Columbian communities.

The Irving K. Barber Learning Centre is proud to partner with government and non-government organizations to provide and facilitate workshops to promote community learning and collaboration in rural and northern communities.

The LIRN BC process encourages local government, provincial, federal, First Nations, non-government organizations (community-based, regional and provincial) and businesses to work together to plan, deliver and evaluate a locally relevant learning initiative.

LIRN BC can bring trainers and facilitators to your community to deliver a learning event for residents. The 2015 Expression of Interest (EOI) includes workshop summaries for 20 workshops offered by LIRN BC partner organizations. Select the topic of the event from the choices offered and explain why this is important in the form below. If your community is selected, you will be contacted by a LIRN BC partner who will work with you to design and deliver a learning event that meets the needs of your community. Successful applicants would be expected to provide publicity support, venue and refreshments.

The EOI must be received by July 3rd, 2015.
