  • The Boy’s Industrial Training School, known colloquially as BISCO, opened in 1922 to provide industrial training and education to “incorrigible youth.” After the passage of the Home for the Aged Act in 1935, the Boy’s Industrial Training School was converted into the Home for the Aged. The school was moved to the Trades Building on Riverview Hospital grounds. It operated until 1954, when it was replaced by the Brannan Lake Industrial School for Boys in Nanaimo.
