the Battlefords Trade & Education Centre Inc. BTEC opened in 1966 under the name, “The Battlefords Sheltered Workshop” With just five participants and one staff.
Our dedication and commitment to providing a safe, friendly, and inclusive environment for adults with intellectual disabilities has remained constant over the past 50 plus years. What started as a small community-based organization has developed into a large centre that 64 participants attend either on a part-time or full-time basis. Our facility is currently the Pfeifer Learning Centre, a 20,000 square foot building that is able to accommodate up to 100 participants.
The North Battleford branch of SARCAN Recycling has been a branch of BTEC since 1989, providing excellent work opportunity to our members, and has become a staple in the community for recycling.
Our recently built Pfiefer Learning Centre is a state of the art facility with a large common room, hands-free washrooms, and tons of space for fun! It also includes our wonderful bookstore.
BTEC has a very rich history in the Battlefords community. You can view Our History page to get to know how we got started and everything we’ve been through on our long and rewarding journey. You’ll get to know important dates and milestones throughout our growth process.
