    2021-2022 Student Thank You Letter

    At Barrier, we knew going into our multi-year partnership with NAIT would change lives. The Indigenous Scholarship Award allows for students to have resources and education to better their lives & enable change. We are very proud of this accomplishment, and would like to both congratulate Glenn and wish him all the best moving forward!

    The Barrier Group: Changing Indigenous Lives

    When Barrier entered a multi-year agreement with NAIT on an Indigenous Scholarship, our goals were to

    1. deepening our integrity in meeting Corporate Social Responsibility mandates;
    2. enhancing our public profile within a progressive community of Indigenous students & leaders, and;
    3. becoming a driver of economic reconciliation and supporters of Indigenous education.

    We are proud of this accomplishment, and wish all of the student benefactors of this opportunity the best moving forward in their careers & their lives!
