Now that you know what a polytechnic does, we bet you want to know where a polytechnic model of education is offered.
Located in key economic regions, polytechnics contribute to a more innovative, productive and globally competitive Canada. Institutions are developing multi-disciplinary talent pipelines – nurturing both technical and employability skills across a broad range of credentials, from four-year Bachelor’s degrees and graduate certificates to shorter-duration diploma programs and apprenticeships in the skilled trades.
Polytechnics Canada members also have considerable depth and capacity to partner with industry on applied R&D. The facilities, equipment and expertise to support applied research projects make our institutions a destination for employers seeking support with new processes, technology adoption, commercialization and more.
