President's Message

Welcome to College of the North Atlantic!

I invite you to explore our programs and courses section to see what CNA has to offer. Our programs and training have helped thousands of graduates achieve rewarding and wonderful careers regionally, nationally and internationally, and they can do the same for you!

The college’s mandate is to provide you with the knowledge and skills students need to embark on a career and help meet the labour force needs of our province’s businesses and industries – and we hold fast on that mandate. We take a proactive approach in making our programming decisions and we have every confidence those choices will have a lasting impact on the lives of our current and future students, and the people of this province.

We focus on the success of our learners by working closely with industry and community stakeholders, ensuring our program offerings meet the demands of an ever-changing workplace and economy. The educational experience at CNA is more than what is learned in classrooms, labs and workshops. Our faculty and staff take an active role in shaping the future of our learners and we are proud of the nurturing environment we provide both inside and outside the classroom.

In addition to working with industry, College of the North Atlantic partners with a number of universities and post-secondary institutions throughout North America and around the world to provide graduates with the ability to further their education through credit transfer agreements. These arrangements allow students to enter degree programs with advanced standing, cutting years off the time it takes them to earn a degree and saving them money in the process.

I hope your CNA experience will be both rich and rewarding, and that it will serve you as well as it has the countless others who have chosen CNA throughout our history!
