The Cameco Corporation has donated $2 million to the Credenda Virtual High School to support programs it offers to students in northern Saskatchewan.
The school delivers online math and science high school courses and has recently expanded to offer business college office and administration courses.
Vince Hill, director of Credenda, stated in a media release that the support better qualifies northern students and enables them to take advantage of career opportunities in their region's natural resource sector. In 2009, approximately 120 of Credenda's 194 online students were of First Nations background.
Credenda is based in Prince Albert and connects students to courses taught by accredited teachers.
