CNC is welcoming community members to visit its six campuses for open house events starting Wednesday February 28. The college encourages pre-registration at by February 28th for a chance to win a $500 tuition credit.

Each campus will host their own event. Prospective students, their families, and students who have already been accepted can explore what CNC has to offer across Northern BC. 

“CNC is a community. We want to welcome new students to our community and do our absolute best to turn their dreams into reality. No matter what your path is, attending open house is a terrific way to explore the opportunities that await you,” said Cindy Heitman, CNC’s president.

“We can’t wait to welcome community members to all CNC campuses,” said Shelley Carter-Rose, CNC’s vice president of student affairs. “No matter where you are in the application process or if you are just thinking about college, attending an open house is a great way to create an initial connection and sense of belonging with the campus faculty and staff.”

At CNC’s open house, the public can explore each campus to its fullest. Experiences include interactive course demonstrations, campus tours, and connecting with faculty members in person. Attendees can also learn about student supports such as academic advising, accessibility supports, financial aid, resources and liaison for Indigenous students, student housing, and admissions.

“It’s very beneficial for students to learn what supports are available as early as possible,” added Carter-Rose. “The transition into post-secondary requires some navigation and planning. CNC’s network of supports can alleviate some of that stress. Learning about those services ahead of time can give students and their families a roadmap to follow and some peace of mind.”

According to the 2023 BC Labour Market Outlook, the province is expected to have more than a million job openings in the next decade. Nearly 75 per cent of those job openings will require some type of post-secondary education or training.

CNC offers more than 80 programs across campuses to better prepare students to fill those positions. CNC’s schools include:

  • Access and continuing education;
  • Health sciences;
  • Human services, university transfer and business studies; and
  • Trades and technologies.

Advance registration is not required to attend. Those who attend an open house will also have their application fee waived and be entered to win one of three $1,000 tuition credit vouchers.
