About

History

The Ontario College system was founded as “a new level and type of education to serve those parts of the population whose needs were not met by the existing education system. Focused mainly on career-oriented education, colleges would create a system which would be a coherent whole”. (Ontario Dept. of Education, Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology Basic Documents, 1967)

Algonquin College tums your ambition into reality. Those aren't ust words. We anticipate future needs, connecting you with people who are changing communities, countries and the world of tomorrow.

Whether you’re interested in competitive sports or just want to stay fit, you’ll find many opportunities to stay active and have fun at Algonquin.

Algonquin is a proud member of both the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association (OCAA) and the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association (CCAA). Our Varsity teams compete in 6 sports at the provincial level within the OCAA. In addition, our Men’s and Women’s teams in Basketball, Soccer, and Volleyball can qualify to compete for a “National Championship” as members of the CCAA.
