About the University

Pacific Coast Community College was established in 2004 with the aim of producing highly skilled and trained healthcare assistants. The college recognises the increasing need for talented healthcare workers in the medical field and aims to satisfy the demand with its graduates. The courses are taught by highly professional nurses with many years of experience working in the field. 

The courses offered by the college include Acute Care Aide Program, Health Care Assistant Program, and Acute Care Skills Program. The courses are accredited by the PCTIA (Private Training Institutions Branch).

The college is partnered with various top healthcare providers including the Fraser Health Authority and Vancouver Coastal Health.


Campus Life

At Pacific Coast Community College you’ll learn as part of a small group of fellow students, allowing you to learn in a much more hands-on way with specialised attention from expert instructors. 

The latest industry-standard equipment is used to teach the students to keep up with the rapidly changing medical field.

Student life

The college offers a friendly environment for all the students. The campus is diverse, and the staff make sure that all students from different backgrounds feel welcome. The students will also have the opportunity to work while studying and develop work experience. 

Students at Pacific Coast are treated as budding professionals rather than scholars, and over 99% find work in a relevant job after graduation.
