Northern BC is quintessential Canada

If you value what Canada stands for, you’ll love the North. This is the quintessential Canada, with magnificent geography in every direction.

You’ll stand out here

Your post-secondary years are your time to explore your interests and discover your passions. In a smaller community, in smaller classrooms, you’ll discover more opportunities to stand out, to take on leadership roles and build lifelong relationships.

The quality of life is exceptional

In a smaller town, you’re never far from your college, your neighbours, or the great outdoors.

You’ll accelerate your career

In the North, there’s a high demand for graduates, and a smaller pool of qualified applicants. You can go further, faster.

Experiential learning

You’ll have unique access to industry and geology that supplements your learning experience beyond the classroom

Aboriginal cultures
