Description
The Churchill Vocational School was established at an abandoned military base in Churchill, Manitoba in 1964 for Inuit students from the Eastern Arctic who were seeking post-secondary training. While the school was non-denominational, the hostel associated with the school employed Roman Catholic and Anglican staff and the students were segregated on the basis of denomination. Some of the students also took classes at the local Duke of Edinburgh School. Because it was always considered a temporary facility, school administrators had ongoing difficulties in getting the federal government to make needed upgrades to the building.
