NorQuest College uniquely delivers to the increasing demands of our economy, uniquely shapes the future of our province and uniquely maximizes opportunities that others don’t see.
NorQuest College is on the traditional lands, referred to as Treaty 6 territory and the City of Edmonton and all the people here are beneficiaries of this peace and friendship treaty.
We are your community college, serving approximately 10,200 full-time, part-time and continuing education students each year. As a regional steward, we provide access to adult education in Edmonton and the surrounding region for 23 communities. Our services stretch from Drayton Valley in the southwest to Whitecourt in the northeast and Wetaskiwin in the southeast, with five regional campuses in addition to our Edmonton campuses.
NorQuest College helps learners with diverse educational backgrounds complete or further their studies through foundational and continuing education programs. Our post-secondary diploma and certificate programs offer career paths in health, community studies and business. We also provide educational opportunities at the times, places and delivery formats that best meet our learners’ needs.
We embrace diversity and honour inclusiveness.
- 60% of our students are born outside of Canada
- Almost 70 languages spoken on campus
- Approximately 11% of our students are self-declared Indigenous Peoples (First Nations, Métis, or Inuit)
By collaborating with business, industry, government and communities, we ensure our post-secondary education is necessary and workforce relevant. We contribute significantly to Alberta’s growing economy.
