Centre for Arts and Technology is not your typical community college or university. The foundation was built over 30 years ago by leaders in both media training and educational excellence. The journey has been long with many different paths being bridged together – the end result is one of Canada’s leading colleges in digital arts and technical training.
Today, we are recognized as one of the few multi-campus schools that continually graduate successful students in the areas of filmmaking, animation, audio engineering, fashion design, event management, interior design, photography, graphic design, and network security.
But we are more than hallways and classrooms, instructors and students. Centre for Arts and Technology is a community that is built through industry contacts and advancing technologies. It is a college that nurtures students along their educational journey, providing challenges and opportunities, mentorship and motivation, all while fostering a collaborative environment where students can reach their full potential.
It has been said by many that have walked through our doors – “you can really feel the difference”. This is one of the greatest compliments we can receive and is something we are always striving to achieve. We want to feel different because we want to be different. It’s not only what make Centre for Arts and Technology special, it’s what makes the students special.

The campuses are as diverse and unique as the students who attend. Centre for Arts and Technology has chosen to call Fredericton, Halifax, and Kelowna home. These distinct cities provide opportunities to the communities surrounding them and add a cultural element to your educational experience. Although the campuses are in some cases on opposite sides of the country, we are linked through our Distributed Learning Centres (DLC) which showcases the latest in video conferencing technology. What does this mean to students? This system allows instruction to take place from one campus to potentially several in as life-like a setting as technology can allow us today.
From Program Advisors to Department Heads, from instructors to Student Services, the people at Centre for Arts and Technology are driven by one common passion – to see the students succeed. Industry professionals will guide you through the classroom while professional support will help you with those things that don’t come from a text book. The important thing to know is that you might be standing at the front of the class, but you’ve got an entire team behind you.
