Changing Lives.

Dedication to student success is Algonquin College’s guiding principle and is demonstrated through the quality of its programs, staff, the continual expansion of its facilities, and by forging strategic partnerships. Every action since the College was established has been to ensure students have access to the education and skills training demanded by the marketplace to launch a rewarding career.

Ottawa Campus

Algonquin College’s main campus is located in Ottawa, the nation’s capital – a city that gives a strong sense of history. Here, you’re 15 minutes away from everything. A 361-square-kilometre national park, museums and galleries, Canada’s largest high-tech community, and the Rideau Canal – a World Heritage Site – are all only minutes from Algonquin College’s beautiful campus.

Pembroke Campus

Algonquin College in the Ottawa Valley is located in Pembroke, on the banks of the Ottawa River. Pembroke is a gateway to Algonquin Provincial Park and is surrounded by hundreds of kilometers of natural areas, forests and waterways. Pembroke is home to world-class whitewater rafting, canoeing, kayaking, boating, camping and hiking.

Perth Campus

Algonquin College Heritage Institute’s campus is located just one hour from Ottawa in the historic Town of Perth.  Perth is only minutes away from provincial and municipal parks and the Tay River for summer and winter activities.
