The Aboriginal Community Economic Development program provides a first year certificate with an option of taking a second year diploma.

As NVIT’s ACED program fulfills the 16 competencies of the Council for the Advancement of Native Development Officers’ (CANDO) technician status, upon completion of the 2nd year, students have the option to apply for technician status with CANDO. In addition to the Diploma and CANDO Certification, the Diploma ladders into a Bachelor of General Studies Degree from Simon Fraser University.
