Welcome to the Sunshine Coast, one of the most beautiful
places on earth! Nestled among forests
and mountains and bounded by the sea, this ribbon of land is the traditional territory
of both the shíshálh (Sechelt)
and Skwxu7mesh Uxwumixw (Squamish) people. Today, approximately 30,000 residents live in
a vibrant community that offers a rich array of recreational opportunities and
a thriving arts community, among other assets.
Our regional centre is located in the village of Sechelt,
midway up the Sunshine Coast. At our
friendly and welcoming campus, class sizes are small and facilitate close,
personal connections between faculty and students. Students also have the opportunity to apply
what they are learning in real world settings.
In fact, we have a saying at our campus
- the community is our classroom.
Our primary goal is to offer pathways to further education
and direct employment for all our students. See a list of our 2014-15 program
