This year Conestoga and Ontario’s other public colleges will celebrate 50 years of delivering career-focused education and preparing graduates for success.
Conestoga was founded in 1967 as part of a provincial movement to introduce a new kind of post-secondary education system to complement universities. At the time, colleges provided career-oriented programming to help graduates find and keep employment to support the economic and social development of communities.
A lot has changed since Conestoga first opened its doors. Today, the college is one of Canada’s leaders in polytechnic education, delivering a comprehensive range of education and training opportunities to serve the needs of the labour market.
Throughout the year you are invited to join the celebrations highlighting our community, alumni, students, faculty, staff and partners. Visit Conestoga’s 50th anniversary website often to share your photos and memories of the college and to stay up-to-date with news related to upcoming events.
