Update on Conestoga Skilled Trades Campus opening

Conestoga’s commitment to excellence in skilled trades training will be highlighted with the opening of the new Conestoga Skilled Trades Campus (CSTC) in fall of 2022.

Located in the Cambridge Business Park, at 25 Reuter Drive, the Phase 1 building is 322,000 sq ft with 150,000 sq ft devoted to shops and labs. Despite the many challenges of the pandemic, construction of this project is progressing well and program delivery will begin in September 2022 for many of the college's signature trades programs. These programs include Plumbing, Carpentry apprenticeship, WIST (Carpentry), Electrician and Precision Metal.

The HVAC, Industrial Millwright and Electro Mechanical & Automation Maintenance programs will move to Reuter in fall of 2023, completing the first phase of campus development on the site. Details regarding program start dates will be communicated to affected students and staff in separate messaging.

When fully realized, the CSTC will be home to all of the college's skilled trades programs and help position Conestoga as Canada's premier destination for skilled trades education and training.
