NIC Student Recruiters will work with you to help you navigate the world of post-secondary and find the right program fit for you. Whether you’re interested in academic programs, upgrading or trades training, or if you’re still deciding what your journey will entail, they can help you chart your path and meet your goals.

Meet our NIC Student Recruiters to discuss program options, how to navigate the post-secondary system, how to apply and our admissions process.

NIC Student Recruiters can also arrange classroom or workshop tours and a meeting with a current student and instructor.

Lela has worked at NIC for almost 15 years in Student Services, International Education, the Bookstore, Student Life and Recruitment. In every job it’s the interactions with students that stand out the most. It gives her great joy to meet former NIC students and hear about their education journeys and career success stories. Helping students is the focus of everything she does, and it’s what makes her work rewarding.

She attended post-secondary in Vancouver and has taken a variety of classes at NIC, so she understands the student experience. She is an avid Outrigger paddler and loves living on Vancouver Island where there is always a wave to catch, and an abundance of nature to explore. She looks forward to connecting with people as they navigate their way to becoming a student at NIC.
