Academy Canada

Careers That Work.

The Connection Hub is designed to be a central place where people can explore post-secondary training options, attend community events, and connect with the AC team. We’re excited to back to the community by creating an inclusive space for education, inspiration, and connection.

Academy Canada is Newfoundland and Labrador’s largest independent career college.  For more than thirty years, we have been offering 35 amazing one and two year Diploma programs from campuses in St. John’s and Corner Brook. We also deliver Adult Basic Education at 13 Learning Centres across the province. Give us a call, we’d love to help you get your career started today!

Academy Canada is a leading Newfoundland and Labrador Career College that was established in 1985 with a unique vision that still guides us today.

Founder Dr. David Smallwood argued that students need more than just books and lectures to become strong professionals. He knew that they also need encouragement, support and a learning environment that challenges everyone to do their very best. Most importantly, however, he taught us that every student deserves to be treated as an individual who has unique goals, motivations and needs.

Academy Canada is proud to be the largest independent career college in NL and one of the most diverse in the entire country. We have helped more than 35,000 students build awesome careers by delivering hands-on and relevant diploma programs in the top 35 employment fields related to Construction Trades, Justice, Business, Health & Personal Care, Creative Studies and Animal Care/Nature.

With 15 locations, we recognize the value of community and strive every day to help prepare a future workforce that will make our province stronger. Whether you attend class in St. John’s, Corner Brook, CBS, Placentia, Bonavista, Deer Lake, Baie Verte, St. Anthony, Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Natuashish, Sheshatshiu, Lab West, Nain or Hopedale we will strive to give you every career (and life) advantage.

Academy Canada has also earned 36 other program-specific accreditations, received many industry endorsements, won numerous awards and negotiated several university/college transfer credit agreements.

While all of these things are important, they pale in comparison to the 95% satisfaction rating that we continuously receive from our students. When asked “would you recommend Academy Canada to a friend?” almost everyone responds with a wholehearted YES! We strive to provide our students and alumni with quality training in the most supportive and constructive environment possible.
