Canadian Tourism College (CTC), Vancouver, British Columbia


Canadian Tourism College (CTC) has been the Canadian leader in high-end hospitality, travel and tourism career training and education since 1980. CTC is the first accredited tourism college in British Colombia, and the only specialty career training institution that focuses on the hospitality, travel and tourism industries.

With your first visit to Canadian Tourism College, you'll notice something special about us. Here you'll find not only a comfortable learning environment, but something more; a spirit of warmth and friendliness, a positive attitude that is shared by everyone, a sense of genuine caring and mutual respect between students, staff and instructors alike. Today, Canadian Tourism College is recognized throughout the travel and tourism industry as the leader in quality training, and remains guided by one basic principle: we put the needs of our students first.

We are a fully accredited college by the Private Career Training Institutions Agency (PCTIA)of British Columbia. In fact CTC was the first college in the Province to earn accreditation in 1995. Being accredited is proof to you that CTC teaches to a high level, meets quality standards set by the Education Act of BC and operates with a high level of integrity and educational competence.

CTC is the proud recipient of the Education Quality Assurance (EQA) designation earned by public and private post secondary education institutions that have met or exceeded government recognized quality assurance standards. This designation further insures our students that CTC is dedicated to providing top quality industry validated curriculum.

Canadian Tourism College welcomes international students to our campuses. If you are planning to study in Canada, you can benefit from enrolling in either CTC's online English courses where you can increase your English language level prior to beginning training at CTC or enroll in our 4 week English For Tourism Certificate program at the College prior to any program commencement. For more details, please contact one of our Enrollment Coordinators.

You will be required to provide TOEFL scores of 490 written or 160 computer based. If you don't have a TOEFL score, you can complete the Canadian Tourism College's online English Assessment with a minimum score of 60%. If you don't obtain a 60% mark on the English Assessment, you may enrol in any of CTC's online English courses to improve English levels prior to course commencement . If you prefer, ESL classes are available through our partner ESL schools. Please consult with an Enrollment Coordinator for more details.


If you are coming to study from out of province or from an International country, it is important to have a comfortable home to arrive to while you get familiar with the Vancouver and Surrey areas. Although the Canadian Tourism College does not provide accommodation on campus for its students we can refer you to companies who specialize in finding homestay placements for national and international students.
