“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old but on building the new Socrates.”

I believe that education has always been a driving force that brings about change for a better life. Heritage Community College has always aimed to provide a supportive and healthy environment for all students to facilitate personal growth and to jump-start careers. At Heritage Community College, our faculty and staff work together to build confidence and competence with each of our students to be utilized in their chosen careers. We value student success in creating an opportunity to develop leadership skills both professionally and personally. Our faculty and staff work tirelessly to inspire, motivate and encourage students to succeed.

We uphold the health and safety of our students and staff as our number one priority. HCC works hard to ensure that the quality of the training delivered is not compromised, students can count on the high standard of education that is the mission of HCC.

I am proud of the amazing work we have done so far and I look forward to continuing to guide HCC to best serve our community of students and Employer stakeholders.

Your future begins here.
Thanks and Best Wishes,

Countries around the world, including Canada, are working to contain the current outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19).

This website contains useful FAQs and resources for HCC faculty, staff, and students. It is updated regularly, following advice from provincial and federal health agencies.

In recent months, HCC has transitioned to online learning and remote working for many of its faculty and staff. We are now in the midst of a COVID-19 safety planning process to allow for a gradual resumption of programs and activities on our campuses, within the BC Restart Plan.

We are also excited to welcome our new and returning students this fall. During fall 2020, HCC will primarily offer larger classes online with selected smaller classes conducted in-person, adhering to physical distancing and other public health requirements. We will maintain a clear focus on ensuring high-quality face-to-face instruction, where possible, and high-quality remote instruction. Our priority remains the wellbeing of our students, faculty, and staff.
