Northwest Community College (NWCC) is an accredited post-secondary institution that serves the rich and diverse communities and learners of BC's beautiful northwest region, including Haida Gwaii and the Great Bear Rain Forest. Established in 1975 in Terrace, BC, NWCC has expanded to nine regional campuses serving 34 communities where the College provides students with innovative programs that lead to sustainable careers for people in the North.

NWCC offers quality and affordable education and a wide variety of certificates, diplomas, and associate degrees. Where applicable, NWCC promotes experiential learning scenarios for its students that highlight the region's unique cultural heritages that connect them to the community and provide interaction with the region's spectacular and rugged environment.

The College's innovative programs and courses respond to learners' changing needs, delivering the skills necessary in today's competitive job markets. NWCC offers college access programs, health and human services programs, online programs, university credit programs, trades foundation, and apprenticeship programs, plus the Freda Diesing School of Northwest Coast Art and The School of Exploration & Mining.

NWCC is a recognized leader in Aboriginal education. Aboriginal peoples comprise roughly 30 percent of the region's population, the highest among all BC college regions and, at NWCC, Aboriginals make up roughly 40 percent of the student body. This success is attributed to the College's free teaching practices and worldviews, plus the development of programs and courses specifically tailored to Aboriginal learners. At Northwest Community College, our core values are guiding principles to help us make decisions and determine priorities in our day-to-day work. We create adventurous pathways to transform lives.
