Culture

The people of Algonquin College form an extraordinary community. We represent experiences and cultures from around the world. There’s a saying that states that it’s not where you work that makes a great working environment, it’s who you work with. Here at Algonquin, we acknowledge that and it shows in our mission to nurture and engage our employees in supporting their career success.
