College of New Caledonia

The College of New Caledonia (CNC) has played an important role in training and educating residents in northern B.C. since 1969. CNC provides students with the second-lowest tuition in the province and focuses on hands-on learning and 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 through a new experiential video conferencing method called DDI (Digital Delivery Instruction). 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 is in the process of building a brand new Heavy Duty Mechanical building at its Prince George Campus, worth more than $15 million and is launching the only second Sonography program available in BC at its Prince George campus in September 2018. 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.
