The History of Academy Canada
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 divides its programs into seven distinct categories (called “Faculties”) based on the type of career they lead to. These Faculties include:
Construction, Trades & Mining
Business, Travel & Computers
Health & Personal Care
Animal Care and Nature
Adult Basic Education
All programs range in duration from 1 to 6 semesters (4-24 months) and lead to Diplomas that are recognized across Canada and abroad.
We also offer advanced apprenticeship training in partnership with the provincial government’s Apprenticeship Division.
Academy Canada also tailors highly specialized, tailored training (of any duration) to meet the specific needs of our Corporate clients.
While each program is offered on-campus, there are a wide range of courses that can be taken remotely through our “World Classroom” online learning platform.
