Community Colleges and Technical Institutes in Vancouver

This category of education providers serves the local students within the community as well as international students. Students can study for university transfer credits, or complete diplomas or certificate programs in preparation for the job market in Vancouver.

One of the key benefits of studying at a community college is the personalized, smaller classes, ease of accessibility, and price factors. Many of the certificate and diploma programs at colleges and technical institutes – as well as at the career training and vocation schools – are aligned directly with industry, offering direct applicability within the job market.

The following list is of a selection of public institutions, accredited by the Ministry of Education of British Columbia. Several community colleges have some degree-granting ability, and are called university-colleges.
