Collège communautaire du Nouveau-Brunswick

Founded 1970 | Bathurst, NB

Located in Canada’s only officially bilingual province, Collège communautaire du Nouveau-Brunswick (CCNB) offers diploma, certificate, degree, trade and apprenticeship programs in French. The school’s five campuses are located in Bathurst, Campbellton, Dieppe, Edmundston and the Acadian Peninsula.

Students can choose from more than 80 programs in areas such as information technology, business, trades, fisheries, health sciences, education and mining technology. Through industry partnerships in Atlantic Canada, CCNB’s programs incorporate internships for on-the-job learning.

CCNB has been growing its research capacities through the CCNB-INNOV applied research and innovation network, alongside Springboard Atlantic and Tech-Access Canada’s networks, all of which work to promote innovation in Atlantic Canada. Most programs at CCNB take between one and three years to complete and are offered through various delivery models, including on campus, in the workplace and distance learning. 

Though student residences aren’t offered, CCNB campuses keep a list of available off-campus housing. Students in Edmundston can apply to live at the Université de Moncton’s Louis-Cyr residence.
