Course Information

The two-year Heritage Carpentry and Joinery Ontario College Diploma program provides you with skills and knowledge related to the preservation, renovation and restoration of historical architecture. Through theoretical and hands-on learning, you study various topics, including:

  • traditional joinery

  • timber framing

  • log building

  • carpentry techniques

  • architectural millwork

  • staircasing

  • window and door repair

Absorb the traditions of old world craftsmanship through both theory and practice. Experience more than 950 hours of hands-on learning during the program. You also have the opportunity to participate in a one-week work placement to practice your skills in a real-world environment.

You graduate with skills that set you apart from graduates of other carpentry programs. Algonquin College`s program places an emphasis on wood as a material and the role of both buildings and their architectural components. You construct buildings and building components from locally-harvested and market-sourced lumber and timber. The crafting of these projects from beginning to end provides an engaging and satisfying educational experience.

Upon graduation, you are ready to work in heritage carpentry, and in the high-end custom carpentry and millwork industries. Opportunities are available in both private and public sectors.

Some graduates may prefer freelance work, while others will take positions in commercial or residential carpentry or millwork companies, or follow the traditional apprenticeship route.
