The Central Mountain Air de Havilland DHC-8-100, C-FVRJ, was operating as GLR9476 from Fort McMurray (CYMM), AB to Edmonton (CYEG), AB. After departure, during the initial climb, the flight crew selected landing gear up and the nose landing gear partially retracted. The landing gear unsafe light associated warning lights illuminated indicating that the nose landing gear was not up and locked. The flight crew attempted to extend the landing gear with no change to the nose landing gear.
