Three campuses throughout Ottawa and the Valley
Algonquin College: Ottawa Campus
A college campus should be designed around student needs. It should include the facilities — from public busing to affordable, healthy food services — that make student life efficient, worry-free, and productive.
Students have varied interests and needs. That’s why the Ottawa campus of Algonquin accommodates a diverse range of requirements. A college campus should be setup to encourage discussion, with students enriching each other’s experience, providing friendship, support and offering a special way to learn.
Ottawa has all the advantages of a big city, while remaining safe, clean, and easy to navigate. From the federal government to high-tech companies, from the Byward Market to music festivals, Canada’s capital city offers you a unique combination of employment opportunities and pastimes. Algonquin College continues to be closely integrated with Ottawa culture and commerce.
Algonquin College in the Ottawa Valley
Imagine a college where you can eat your lunch along the shores of the Ottawa River or stroll through parkland walkways between classes. It would be hard to find a college campus anywhere in Canada more beautifully situated than our Pembroke waterfront campus.
In November 2012, a new, $36-million campus officially opened, offering sixteen full-time programs, plus apprenticeship, academic upgrading and continuing education courses. With small classes and experienced instructors, the campus promises you outstanding learning opportunities.
Surrounded by the region’s rural and rugged natural terrain, the Pembroke campus is a natural fit for unique outdoor programs such as Outdoor Adventure, Outdoor Adventure Naturalist, Forestry Technician, and Environmental Technician programs.
Along with these unique programs, the Pembroke campus also offers a variety of business, trades, technology, health, and community studies programs.
Algonquin College Heritage Institute
Our Perth campus is special. There is the beautiful setting, the small-town charm, and the unique programs that can be found nowhere else in Ontario.
Beyond those attributes, there’s the special relationship with the Town of Perth. There is a lot of interaction with the local community. Everyone gets a strong sense of belonging.
Perth students quickly benefit with community involvement — from working on local buildings to using recreational facilities, such as hockey rinks and gymnasiums. Ultra-modern equipment stands side-by-side with centuries-old trade techniques.
Perth’s non-traditional approach to learning extends to the classroom environments – many of which follow an open concept, perfect for promoting the exchange of information and camaraderie.
Our instructors are nationally and internationally connected and come to us with outstanding experience and reputations—and are often called on to take leadership roles at conferences and seminars.
