On Thursday, March 1st, we will be opening the doors for an official college grand opening event at the new downtown Vancouver campus at 200-1111 Melville Street. This will be a chance for hiring managers, professionals and influencers in the industry to tour the campus and network with faculty, staff and alumni.
The move to an expanded campus was truly a testament to increasing worldwide demand for well-trained individuals in the travel, tourism and hospitality industries. According to the go2HR website, British Columbia’s tourism industry is projected to create 101,000 new job openings by 2020. As Tourism instructor Lori Albina puts it, “Tourism gives people great opportunities around the world, and I think it’s a great business to be in”. As the longest-running tourism college in Vancouver, Canadian Tourism College has had a significant role in producing top-notch graduates who are ready to enter the industry and find great success.
This new space is also home to Sterling College, CTC’s sister institution. The newly revamped Sterling College has been offering a Post Graduate Certificate in Nursing Practice in Vancouver since the fall and has seen the program grow at an incredible speed, with over 90 applications received for the January 2018 intake. This year, the college will be adding a Creative Technologies program as well.
Tourism, Nursing and Creative Technology industry professionals and leaders are encouraged to attend this event, as well as CTC alumni.
What to expect: Join industry professionals, faculty and staff as we proudly present our new campus and allow our guests to explore the facilities through self-guided tours. Refreshments will be provided as guests mingle and meet.
Why attend? This is a great tourism industry networking opportunity! Connect with CTC alumni and meet industry professionals. Create new contacts and discover hiring opportunities.
New Campus Address:
200 – 1111 Melville Street, Vancouver, BC
