About Arbutus


Arbutus College was established in 2002, with the key objective to provide students with a unique business and communication educational structure not available elsewhere in Vancouver. Various surveys conducted with over 1000 graduates from the College reflect a high level of satisfaction in their chosen programs of study. As a result, our students have increased confidence to compete for good positions in the job market.

Our Mission is to offer quality education that integrates communication and professional skills to prepare graduates for success in the global workplace.

Our Vision is to create a dynamic learning community where students from diverse professional and cultural backgrounds can prepare to meet the challenges of the world.

Arbutus College is a certified designated private training institution by British Columbia’s Private Training Institution Branch of the Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills and Training. 


Governance Structure

Arbutus College maintains local control over curriculum, policies, procedures and daily operations. The College shares organizational structures, administrative computer systems, and support systems with EduCo, its parent organization. All recruitment, student services and policies, as well as administration and fiscal management, are administered and overseen locally by Arbutus College’s management team.
