Welcome to CNC

Nestled in the heart of Prince George, the College of New Caledonia has played an important role in training and educating residents in northern B.C. since 1969.

Programs and courses

CNC offers more than 50 programs in health sciences, trades and technologies, social services, business and university studies and is an integral part of what makes Prince George a great place to live and learn.

CNC provides affordable tuition, practical, hands-on learning and no more than 37 students in a class, which makes it easier for students to achieve their goals. In as little as 10 months, students can acquire the skills they need for a long-lasting, stable and successful career.

Our health sciences programs continuously train qualified professionals, such as nurses, medical laboratory and medical radiography technicians and dental hygienists and assistants.

Trades training

CNC constructed two new trades and technology centres at its Prince George and Quesnel campuses in 2011, worth more than $30 million. CNC provides Red Seal trades training in welding, machinist, millwright, carpentry, electrical, plumbing, heavy duty mechanics, autobody, power engineering, professional cook and more.
