Selkirk College president Angus Graeme speaks before a large crowd gathered in March 2014 for the announcement of a $1 million donation from Columbia Basin Trust for facility and equipment upgrades to the trades-based Silver King Campus in Nelson.

Silver King project still in the works

A Selkirk College executive remains optimistic a $32 million upgrade to the Silver King and Castlegar campuses will go ahead.

A year and a half after the kickoff to a $32 million upgrade to Selkirk College’s Silver King and Castlegar campuses, not much has been heard of the project, but a college executive remains optimistic it will go ahead.

“We have submitted a business case to the Ministry of Advanced Education which is currently making its way through their processes,” said Gary Leier, Selkirk’s vice president of college services and chief financial officer. “We remain confident the project will receive the necessary approvals.”

In March 2014, the Columbia Basin Trust announced a $1 million donation for facility and equipment upgrades to the trades-based Silver King Campus in Nelson. The grant was expected to leverage other money.
