2019 Capping & Pinning

As everyone is aware due to wildfires in May/June of this year, Northern Lakes College made a difficult decision to postpone the Capping and Pinning Ceremony and Northern Lakes College Convocation. I am pleased to advise that a new date and location has now been determined and on behalf of Northern Lakes College, I would like to invite you to the Capping and Pinning Ceremony to celebrate your success in the Practical Nurse Program! Congratulations!

The Gathering Place

800 6 Avenue Northwest
Slave Lake, Alberta


You are required to come dressed in a white uniform, with the appropriate white stockings and white shoes. This is a formal ceremony, and it is expected that your attire reflects that.


A photographer will be in place for formal pictures between 15:00 and 18:00 hours and there will be a sitting fee charge of $30 (cash only) payable to the photographer. The photographer will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis, so the earlier you arrive, the better your chances of completing your pictures prior to 1800 hours when you must be in place.


Those attending this year’s event do not require individual tickets. Please invite your family and friends as you wish.

The Northern Lakes College Convocation ceremony is scheduled for the following day, Friday, September 13th, at 13:00 (same facility) and I strongly encourage you to stay and attend. There is a limit of 4 tickets per person for this Convocation ceremony. Additional details for Convocation can be found at
