General description

The College of New Caledonia has served the needs of students in B.C.’s Central Interior since 1969—and with the inclusion of the B.C. Vocational School, since 1962. The College region is approximately 117,500 sq. km. (or 12% of the province), with a population today exceeding 148,000. The region encompasses three school districts: #28 Quesnel, #57 Prince George, and #91 Nechako Lakes. The College offers a full range of Career, Technical, Vocational, and University Credit programming. Average annual enrollment is approximately 5,000 students.

In January 1969, the College was established on an “operating funds only” basis, with financial assistance from participating school districts and using leased facilities at the Prince George Senior Secondary School. Over the summer, faculty were hired to teach courses in the first programs to be offered at CNC. 

  • First Year University Arts and Science
  • Administrative Science
  • Data Processing
  • Early Childhood Education

In September, registration was set up on the main floor of the Secondary School and 253 students registered from all participating regions. On October 10, 1969 the College held its official opening ceremony at Vanier Hall where guests received the first issue of the newly-launched student newspaper, S’quun! (“fire” in Carrier).
