The College of New Caledonia (CNC) has played an important role in training and educating residents in northern B.C. since 1969. Along with being one of the most affordable post-secondary institutions in B.C. and providing hands-on learning, CNC focuses on small class sizes, with a capacity of 37 seats or less. CNC offers more than 70 programs. Some of them are region-specific, while others are offered across multiple campuses or online. College of New Caledonia operates from six campuses in Prince George, Burns Lake, Fort St. James, Mackenzie, Quesnel and Vanderhoof. CNC students can easily take advantage of 15 agreements with 10 universities in B.C., Alberta and elsewhere, allowing them to easily transfer into the third year of degree programs. Credentials awarded include certificates, diplomas, advanced diplomas, associate degrees, foundation programs and apprenticeships. Upgrading and Continuing Education are also among many options for students. CNC constructed two new trades and technology centres at its Prince George and Quesnel campuses in 2011, worth more than $30 million. CNC provides Red Seal trades training for welders, machinists, millwrights, carpenters, electricians, plumbers, heavy duty mechanics, auto body technicians, power engineers, professional cook and more. CNC is also home to an Aboriginal Resource Centre, which provides academic, cultural, emotional, and community support for students. Learn more.
