College of New Caledonia
Prince George, Canada


University description (as per official university website)

The College of New Caledonia (CNC) is a publicly-funded post-secondary institution. It was established in Prince George, British Columbia, Canada in 1969, and has since expanded across central British Columbia, with campuses in Prince George, Quesnel, Mackenzie, Burns Lake, Valemount, Fort St. James, Fraser Lake and Vanderhoof.

CNC enrolls about 5,000 students each year (all campuses) in approximately 90 distinct programs in business and management, community and continuing education, health sciences, adult basic education / upgrading, trades and industry, social services, and technologies.

As well, CNC offers university-level classes leading to degrees and professional programs in many subjects, with excellent transferability to universities in BC, Alberta, and elsewhere.

For detailed enrollment statistics, visit the CNC Fast Facts page.

College region
CNC serves a large area of north-central BC -- approximately 117,500 square kilometres, or 12% of the province. The region's population is about 145,000, and it encompasses three school districts: #28 (Quesnel), #57 (Prince George), and #91 (Nechako Lakes).

Mission Statement
The College of New Caledonia, as a comprehensive college, provides access to lifelong learning and facilitates the achievement of personal and educational goals. We are responsive to the diverse needs of our students, our employees, and the communities in our region. In the dynamic, consultative environment, we deliver quality programs and promote the success of every student.

The College received its Coat of Arms in an historic joint ceremony with the City of Prince George in 1996.

Coats of Arms are grants of honour from the Crown. Symbols used in the design represent unique features of the College and its region. Elements from an earlier College "crest" form an important part of this new design.

Shield of Arms: The "Y" in the Shield represents the confluence of the Fraser and Nechako Rivers at Prince George, where the College was first established. On the "Y" are five Cross Crosslets, taken from the Coat of Arms of Simon Fraser - the explorer who gave the region its early name of New Caledonia, later adopted by the College. The number Five honours the original School Districts which helped to establish the College and also represents the five main campuses of the College today. At the top of the Shield is an Open Book, a traditional symbol of learning.

Crest (above the shield): A closed Helmet means the wearer is "ready for battle." Above the Helmet is a gold Coronet or crown, a link to the royally named City of Prince George. The Coronet is rimmed with Pine Cones, representing the forests of the region. At the top is a Beaver, an animal associated with diligence and in an historical context, symbolic of the early fur trade of the region and its native heritage.

Supporters: On either side of the Shield are Supporters, chosen from animals indigenous to the region. On the left is a Bear wearing a blue collar and pendant disc on which is displayed a Pair of Dividers, representing Design and Technical Studies. On the right is a Fox, wearing a disc on which is displayed a Lamp of Learning.

College Colours: Blue ("loyalty and achievement") and Gold ("prosperity").

Motto: "Toujours la Verite" (The truth always). The motto is in French, in recognition of the bilingual nature of our country.

Badge and Flag: Both the Badge and Flag have a Cross Crosslet, taken from the Shield. The Cross Crosslet is surrounded by a golden sun or Sun in Splendor. This represents the light of learning. It also associates the College with the Province of British Columbia, which has a Sun in Splendor on its Coat of Arms.
