Academy Canada is a proud Newfoundland & Labrador college with campuses located in 13 communities throughout the province.
With its amazing culture, friendly people and vibrant economy, NL has arguably become the best place to study (and work) in Canada. With a robust oil and gas sector, major untapped natural resources, an amazing business community and a strong need for health care services, there are tremendous opportunities for ambitious professionals who want to build their lives and careers at home.
In order to meet the future labour force demands, people need proper training. Academy Canada is well poised to do exactly that in every corner of the province! We have accepted the challenge to prepare the skilled tradespeople, health care workers, administration professionals and creative imaginers that are going to be in demand for many, many years to come. To do this, we have built several world-class facilities.
Academy Canada is the largest independent college in Newfoundland and Labrador regardless of which measure you use. We have the most locations (14), most students (1,400), most diverse program offerings (35), highest staffing levels (195), greatest investment in facilities (millions of dollars) and largest physical training space. The College manages 21 buildings and more than 200,000 ft2 of classroom/shop/services space that is specifically tailored to the needs of our students.
Despite our size, the college has found a way to create an environment that is incredibly personable and where (as the saying goes) everyone knows your name.
