Centres of Excellence!
About Our College
We are Newfoundland and Labrador’s public college – one of the largest post-secondary educational and skills training centres in Atlantic Canada, with a history dating back 50 years. Today we have 17 campus locations throughout Newfoundland and Labrador, thousands of students studying our curriculum at various partner universities in China, and operate a technical education college for the State of Qatar in the Middle East.
In Newfoundland and Labrador we offer nearly 100 full-time program offerings and more than 300 part-time courses for some 25,000 students each year in:
- Applied Arts
- Business Studies
- Engineering Technology
- Health Sciences
- Industrial Trades
- Information Technology
- Natural Resources
College of the North Atlantic (CNA) continues to have the lowest tuition fees of any post-secondary institution in Atlantic Canada. We offer an impressive world-class, nationally accredited range of programming that meets the highest demands of industry; transferability opportunities that promote continuing education at home and abroad; research and development leadership in community and regional innovation; and precedent-setting international partnerships.
Through our Office of Applied Research we explore ways to apply new knowledge to promote sustainable economic activity. With researchers and facilities located at several campuses, and connected by a modern communication network, CNA responds to industry and community needs across the province.
Do we have the right to claim a superior product? Indeed we do! The provincial Department of Education’s CareerSearch findings prove that a higher percentage of CNA’s graduates find high-paying jobs specific to their field of study than those from other post-secondary options – rewarding, lucrative jobs doing what they were trained to do.
To us, it’s a basic equation of supply and demand – and CNA delivers!
