Okanagan College Students’ Union supports the future of trades

OCSU cheque presentation On Feb. 20, faculty, staff and students were invited to a special morning coffee-break event to share in the excitement of the Okanagan College Students’ Union announcing its pledge of $100,000 towards the Bright Horizons, Building for Skills fundraising campaign that supports the renovation and expansion of the trades training complex at Okanagan College.
 
“After supporting the Centre of Excellence at the Penticton Campus a few years ago, seeing how that building came together and the impact that it has had for students as a place to grow and succeed…that really inspired us to get behind this project,” said Chelsea Grisch, Executive Chairperson of the Okanagan College Students’ Union.
 
“We are very proud and appreciative of the fact that our students have chosen to invest in the future of their college,” said Okanagan College President Jim Hamilton. “Their action demonstrates great leadership on their part and confirms our commitment to providing the best possible environment to support student learning.”
 
The College acknowledges the significance of its students stepping up to support not only their education, but the education of those students who will follow in their footsteps.

The College’s commitment to sustainability and reducing environmental footprint through an innovative design motivated OCSU to support the project. The building is aiming to meet both the Living Building Challenge and LEED Platinum objectives.

OC, OCFA among those who have signed provincial template agreement

The Post-Secondary Employers’ Association (PSEA) has reached a tentative template agreement on compensation and other common agreement issues with faculty represented by the Federation of Post-Secondary Educators of BC under the Economic Stability Mandate.

The tentative template agreement covers about 3,200 faculty working at eight colleges throughout the province, including Okanagan College. Bargaining must now be concluded on negotiable items at the local level for the eight participating colleges: OC, Camosun College, College of New Caledonia, College of the Rockies, Douglas College, North Island College, Northwest Community College and Selkirk College.

Local bargaining is under way at Okanagan College.

The term of the five-year template agreement is from April 1, 2014, to March 31, 2019. The tentative template provides for a 5.5 per cent wage increase over the five years of the term with potential for additional increases if the B.C. economy exceeds the annual forecasts set by the Economic Forecast Council during the last four years of the agreement.

More information about the agreements will continue to be shared once the local portion of negotiations and the individual ratification processes have been completed.

Construction Craft Worker program coming to the College

Construction Craft Workers are a vital part of every construction site and team. Starting in March Okanagan College will be offering a new two-level apprenticeship program to meet the provincial demand for the training and offer those who function in the role the opportunity for Red Seal accreditation.
 
“Construction labourers are professionals who have solid experience under their tool-belts,” explained Okanagan College Dean of Trades and Apprenticeship Steve Moores. “Earning this accreditation will make it easy for employers to determine that the worker is trained and skilled to perform the tasks at hand. For the worker, it can be the differentiator in getting hired.”
 
“Knowing that our trades workers have a Red Seal gives me confidence that they have a strong understanding of construction and the necessary skills to be on any site,” said Matt Kenyon, General Manager of Greyback Construction. “Ultimately, it makes for a safer work environment. At Greyback we fully support the students of Okanagan College and will offer these workers mentorship and site tours.”
 
Jason BonneauPenticton Indian Band member Jason Bonneau has enrolled in Okanagan College’s March program, with encouragement from his employer Greyback Construction. “I’ve only ever worked in construction. It fascinates me to have the knowledge of being able to make something out of nothing, to build it up,” said the 38-year-old Bonneau. “As a father of five, providing for my family is a top priority. Obtaining my Red Seal as a Construction Craft Worker means I can earn more money and grow a lifelong career in a field I’m passionate about.”

Dr. Barry McGillivray makes significant gift to the College

Barry McGillivray donationDr. Barry McGillivray, Associate Dean of the College’s School of Business, has donated $100,000 to develop a research centre at the College that will be focused on small business and entrepreneurship in the Southern Interior.
 
The Centre is intended to act as an incubator for faculty to conduct applied research, particularly with regard to studying the barriers entrepreneurs face. Also, a portion of the funds, invested with the Okanagan College Foundation, will be directed toward scholarships and bursaries for students.
 
“I’m giving back to a region that has been very good to me and I have a great and abiding faith in the quality of our students,” said McGillivray, pointing to a long list of student accomplishments in national and international case competitions and to a growing number of notable alumni from the College’s Business Administration degree and diploma programs.
 
“Barry’s commitment to this region and to our institution is remarkable,” said Okanagan College President Jim Hamilton. “I know he thought carefully about what he could do to help the communities we serve, consulted many people and struck upon developing this Centre as the best investment he could make. I applaud him for his generosity and his foresight.”

Carter family donation to enhance study space for trades students

Carter DonationOne of Kelowna’s auto industry pioneers, Al Carter, has donated $50,000 to support the construction of two group study rooms in the new trades building, which is slated to open in spring of 2016. The study rooms will help meet the demand for student space as the College works to train and educate the tradespeople to address a government-projected shortage of skilled trades workers over the next decade.
 
“Our family has always been a strong supporter of apprenticeship,” said Carter. “We’ve had many College alumni working in our auto repair shops over the years—including John Haller, former Dean of Trades. We think the apprenticeship process is a wonderful thing and we’re proud to support trades training at the College.”
 
“We know that labour shortages for the trades sector as a whole are expected as early as 2016—with the Government of Canada predicting that our workforce will need one million additional skilled workers by 2020,” said Jim Hamilton, President of Okanagan College. “We are grateful to the Carter family for investing in our College’s future and helping us to provide students with state-of-the-art spaces to learn and succeed.”
 
“One piece of advice that I’ve always had for people starting out in any trade,” adds Carter, “is to keep learning. Learn your job well, and then learn the next job up. If you show that you’re hungry to learn, and that you want to keep building your skills, employers will take notice.”

Curling comes to the stage in upcoming Red Dot Players production

Red Dot PlayersCapturing the heart of Canadian culture, The Okanagan College Red Dot Players present W.O. Mitchell’s comedy The Black Bonspiel of Wullie MacCrimmon at the Kelowna campus from March 5 to 8. The two-act play delivers quirky characters, clever dialogue and takes a fond look at the obsession with curling so typical of a prairie town.
 
Based on the classic literary tale of Faust's deal with the devil, the audience will be transported to the fictional town of Wildrose, Alberta in 1936 where protagonist Wullie, a shoe repairman, faces-off with the devil in the ultimate curling match. The stakes are high: a win means Wullie will ultimately earn gold at the upcoming Brier Championship, but if he loses, he not only loses his immortal soul to the devil, but – even worse in his opinion— he will have to play on the devil’s team in the Celestial Brier, a curling match between Heaven and Hell.
 
“One of the challenges with the script was to create an actual curling match on the stage," said the play’s director Mike Minions, Okanagan College's Educational Technology Coordinator. "Using the big lathe in the College's carpentry shop we built some wooden curling rocks on roller bearings."
 
The play’s cast of 10 and crew of five are comprised of a group of the College’s students, employees and alumni and English Professor Jeremy Beaulne is the artistic director.
 
Performances at the Kelowna campus theatre on March 5, 6, and 7 each start at 7 p.m., with an additional matinee on Sunday, March 8 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the Okanagan College Campus Store, Mosaic Books, and at the door.  For more information visit the Red Dot Players website and read the press release.

“This award will help me monumentally in my educational career,” explained award recipient Connie Ramey, who hopes to become a residential contractor or pursue a career in environmental sociology. “This gift has made possible the opportunity to follow my passion.”
 
Smith, who passed away in 2010 at the age of 92, had a life-long passion for learning, noted Grace Sawarin.
 
The Oline Smith Technology Awards will be presented annually to students in the three-year Sustainable Construction Management Technology diploma program who demonstrate a combination of academic achievement and financial need.
