University Overview

Vanier College is a publicly-funded English language CEGEP located in Montreal. Named in honour of General Georges P. Vanier, a Canadian soldier, diplomat and former Governor General of Canada, Vanier College opened its doors on September 8, 1970 welcoming close to 1,400 students in its first cohort. The Vanier College Crest is an adaptation of the Vanier family Coat of Arms.

The Vanier College Campus
Situated on an oasis of green in the Borough of Saint-Laurent, of the City of Montreal, Vanier College occupies property and buildings purchased by the government from the Soeurs de Sainte-Croix who previously operated a convent (Couvent Notre-Dame-des-Anges) and a private women’s college (Collège Basile-Moreau) in the location. These buildings have undergone considerable renovations over the years to accommodate the changing needs of post secondary education.

Career and Pre-University Programs
Vanier College continues to offer full-time pre-university programs and technical career programs leading to a Diploma of College Studies (DCS), while the Continuing Education Department offers credit DCS courses and Attestation of College Studies (ACS) programs, as well as non credit courses and programs.
