ATEC is a 27,000-square-foot, fully accredited, non-profit, community-based, post-secondary training facility. The purpose-built facility, which officially opened in 2006, is the first of its kind to be built on a Manitoba First Nation reserve.
It was originally built to provide job training opportunities for work on the Wuskwatim hydroelectric generation project. Several hundred NCN Citizens participated in Wuskwatim-related training programs since
ATEC was first announced in April 2003, as part of the agreement NCN negotiated with Manitoba Hydro to build Wuskwatim. (Below is an archive of downloadable publications, including brochures and newsletters that highlight ATEC's early history.
After those training programs were complete, the facility has transitioned to other educational uses. ATEC's long-term focus will be to offer a wide range of post-secondary and other education opportunities to fill
skill needs for the First Nation and others in Northern Manitoba.
ATEC is still an agency for Manitoba's Job Referral Service, but the emphasis has shifted from jobs on Wuskwatim to jobs on the upcoming Keeyask Hydroelectric Project and the Keewatinoow Converter Station project that is part of the proposed Bipole III direct-current transmission line.
