So Much More Than Textbooks!
At Academy Canada we believe that college life is about more than books and lectures! It should be an opportunity to reinvent yourself, explore new things and meet interesting people…all while getting a quality education.
Our family (lovingly called AC Nation”) works hard every year to find new ways to make your experience enjoyable. Whether you are looking for volunteer opportunities, athletic competition, social events or a way to pamper yourself, we’ve got activities that are sure to please.
|Social Life||Our monthly on-campus socials and group outings are excellent opportunities to make new friends and have a ton of fun. We’re sure you’ll enjoy our activities for September Orientation, Halloween party, Christmas Talent Show, Winter Blah Busters, Valentine’s Day, St. Paddy’s Day and summer celebrations. If you have an idea for a new event we’d love to help you organize it!|
|Volunteerism:||Over the last 30 years Academy Canada students and staff have volunteered more than three million hours with worthwhile community groups! They support amazing sports groups, community agencies and medical causes. We strongly support their spirit of giving and the difference it makes in the lives of others. Not only is it a great resume builder…it feels great! We’d be happy to help you find a cause that matches your passion.|
|Exposure to new ideas:||The college routinely welcomes guest lecturers to speak to classes on a wide range of topics related to their field of training, the world of work or life in general.|
|Pampering:||You work hard and deserve a break every once in a while. Don’t be afraid to take them. Several of our campuses offer free or virtually free weekly Client Day services to students to help them beat the stress. For example, you can get a haircut, coloring, braids or foils, scalp treatment, waxing, manicure/pedicure, electrolysis, make-up, facials, body wraps, or a massage…right on campus!
We can even give your cat or dog a special day out at our Animal Grooming Clinic. No other school can offer you those services!
|Athletics:||The college regularly hosts ball-hockey, softball, darts or other tournaments to help get the competitive sports flowing.|
|Great Food:||Several of our campuses have cafeterias with catering services. At our Harding Road campus, for example, our in-house Chefs prepare daily specials that will make your mouth water.|
|Pet Therapy:||Don’t be surprised if you regularly see amazing cats and dogs around campus. Our Animal Grooming and Veterinary Assistant programs welcome them to class all the time and they are always a highlight.|
|Picture It:||Our Photographic Studies class is always looking for photo shoot models. Don’t be surprised if they pick you out of the crowd and ask to capture your beauty/handsomeness.|
2021-2022 and 2022-2023 Key Dates
Note: Because Canada Day lands on a Saturday in 2023, the holiday is observed on a nearest Monday, July 3, 2023.

Happy “Pride Month”
June is “Pride Month”, a celebration to show everyone that love is universal regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
As part of celebrating “Pride Month”, the Corner Brook Campus displayed an Academy Canada sign in rainbow colours.
