Wow - anyone who is interested and wondering about Canada’s far
North - it’s amazing. What a fantastic opportunity. I was lucky
enough to spend some time there and would go for this if I were more
qualified! (You’ll need/want every penny of the “northern allowance”

  • the Arctic winters are like nothing you’ve imagined, at least for
    this desert girl.)

I lived in Winnipeg for a year, bitterly cold in the cool season,
-50F but there is no moisture to have you “feel” the cold wind.
little snow!..but the its almost refreshing to experience the winter.
If I was accepted I’d go there and teach anytime…anyone

My cousin is one of three regional Geologists in Nunavut.=A0He loves
it up there, and takes jewellery courses at the college.=A0He just
sent me a fantastic Spinel specimen, lots of raw gems up there if
you have any interest in Lapidary.=A0With all the burgeoning mineral
exploration, there is going to be quite a cottage industry in stone
cutting and metal arts in the next little while.=A0I highly reccommend
checking it out.=A0But it is MAD cold up there.=A0It doesn’t take long
to get used to, but the abundance of fresh fruits and veggies is
very slight.
