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.
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.
art installation was created by Shane Jackson of the shíshálh Nation and
represents the Four Clans of the Sechelt Nation.It was presented to the
Sunshine Coast Campus in 2012 and hangs in our lobby.
