About Selkirk College

Selkirk International is committed to welcoming students from around the world and providing opportunities for all Selkirk College students to have an international experience as a part of their studies. At Selkirk College, Canadian and International Students study side-by-side in over 60 different programs. Selkirk College is also home to over 311 international students, from 26 countries, studying in 25 program areas and 127 Aboriginal learners study in more than 30 program areas. Selkirk College also offers transfer courses that enable students to transfer to a university to pursue their degree. The college is located in a world-class outdoor setting that provides incredible recreational opportunities for students in both their studies and leisure time. Selkirk is not only BC’s oldest regional college but the first created through a community referendum. The very first day of classes at Selkirk College were held in temporary buildings, abandoned bunkhouses at Celgar, a local pulp and paper mill. It was September 1966 but the college’s roots trace back to 1964 – 1965, during which discussions and forums finally resulted in a regional vote in favour of funding BC's first regional college.

Selkirk is a leader in environmental sustainability and has implemented initiatives that improve campus life, surrounding communities and the health of the environment. The college is also home to the Regional Innovation Chair in Rural Economic Development, the Selkirk College Geospatial Research Centre, the Rural Development Institute (in partnership with Columbia Basin Trust) and the Mir Centre for Peace. Selkirk College delivers exemplary teaching and outstanding learning experiences.

Selkirk College is located in the Kootenays, a spectacular region of rivers, lakes, waterfalls, beaches, mineral hot springs, alpine meadows and snow-capped mountains that is home to four of British Columbia's seven national parks.
