The College of New Caledonia (CNC) is a post-secondary educational institution that serves the residents of the Central Interior of British Columbia. This region has a population of about 145,000, and it encompasses three school districts: #28 (Quesnel), #57 (Prince George), and #91 (Nechako Lakes). CNC operates six campuses in Prince George, Burns Lake, Fort St. James, Mackenzie, Quesnel and Vanderhoof.

CNC offers small class sizes, not in excess of 37 students, as mandated by their faculty agreement.

CNC has an approximate annual system-wide enrollment of 5,000 students in health sciences, trades, university studies, career access and continuing education.


The college was established in Prince George, British Columbia, Canada (53.905°N 122.782°W) in 1969 as a successor to the B.C. Vocational School. The College was called “New Caledonia,” a name given to the region by the early explorer, Simon Fraser. The first convocation of 37 graduates took place in 1971. CNC has since expanded by opening up campuses across central British Columbia.

College of New Caledonia's Arms, Supporters, Flag and Badge were registered with the Canadian Heraldic Authority on June 4, 1996.
