Our small, friendly and close-knit campus community is located within the city of Williams Lake, BC, named in honor of Secwepemc Chief William. Here, you’ll enjoy a quiet and affordable lifestyle, with all the amenities of a larger centre, and with four seasons of spectacular outdoor adventures in your own beautiful backyard.

We offer small class sizes, personal attention, and practical learning experiences in every program.

While many of our students come from the region and are Secwepemc, Carrier, Tŝilhqot'in, St’át’imc, Okanagan, Nuxalk, Nlaka'pamux, Métis and Inuit, we welcome Indigenous students from across the country.


We have a selection of programs offered to students right here in Williams Lake. If you don't see what you're looking for, contact us about taking courses online through Open Learning.
