Tahltan Central Government Education & Training Department

The TCG introduced two funding programs in 2018 to provide supplementary financial support for Tahltans pursuing post-secondary education and training opportunities:

1. The Post Secondary and Trades Training Program

2. The Short Term Training and Certifications Program

These programs are administered by the Tahltan Education Director and are available to all TCG members. Click here for more details – Tahltan Central Government Education & Training Funding Programs.

Working alongside the newly formed Tahltan Education and Training Advisory Board and TCG Leadership, TCG Education & Training Department will be responsible for administering new funding programs, establishing stronger relationships with post-secondary and training institutions, and advocating for the Tahltan people in pursuit of education and training opportunities. We will also help administer new scholarship opportunities through government and industry. We can reimburse tuition fees and course costs that occurred between May 1 – August 31 with receipts.
