The team at Meadow Lake Mechanical Pulp (MLMP) recently made a $5,000 donation to the Meadow Lake campus of North West College. The donation will help to update the welding lab on campus.
Lisa Carbert-Pliska, Human Resources with MLMP, feels that having the opportunity to impact local programs that are providing education for potential future employees is a focus for Meadow Lake Mechanical Pulp Inc. “If our mill can hire locally, it provides stability to our workforce. With a facility like North West College, located right here in Meadow Lake, the opportunities for education in the trades are easily accessible to our community.”
North West College, Meadow Lake Campus offers programs in the following trades: Welding, Electrician, Carpentry, Plumbing & Pipefitting, Heavy Equipment & Truck & Transport, Hairstylist and Culinary Arts.
