Workforce & Personal Development

Algonquin College is passionately focused on our students’ success, following our vision, mission, and core values to help every student succeed. Workforce and Personal Development (WPD) supports these efforts by assisting diverse populations, underrepresented groups and new Canadians successfully enroll and complete post-secondary education.

  • We welcome and work to support immigrants and newcomers to Canada, Aboriginal peoples, people with disabilities, and students who are the first in their family to attend post-secondary education.
  • We are experts at transitioning mature and experienced workers into new career paths, and assisting men and women who want to enter non-traditional occupations.
