Humber College Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning

Founded 1967 | Toronto, ON

Just behind Humber College’s North campus in Toronto sits its arboretum, a 100-hectare park with sprawling botanical gardens lining the Humber River. The park features the Carolinian life zone, one of the most diverse ecosystems in Canada and an excellent learning opportunity for students in programs such as sustainable energy and building technology. The school’s sustainability program awards an extra certificate alongside a general arts and science diploma or certificate. 

Humber’s five Centres of Innovation facilitate collaboration between faculty, students, industry partners and community organizations. Its students have won gold in the 3D digital game art, baking and mechatronics categories at the Skills Canada National Competition and have represented Canada at the WorldSkills competition. Humber’s athletes and varsity teams have won national and provincial titles in badminton, volleyball and basketball. 

Humber offers degree, diploma, certificate, apprenticeship and continuing education programs at its three campuses across Toronto. The North and Lakeshore campuses in Toronto have suite-style student residences. The North campus is also home to the Humber Room restaurant, where culinary and hospitality students hone their skills. The Humber Wellness Centre includes a spa that supports the aesthetician and spa management programs, along with a massage therapy clinic.

Construction is underway at two locations. The Humber Cultural Hub at the Lakeshore campus is one of the most environmentally conscious developments in Canada. The recent Centre for Skilled Trades expansion in Etobicoke added 16,620 square feet with new classrooms and technology.
