VCCT is moving!

Dear Students, Graduates, Staff, Friends & Family

Please make a note of our new campus location in effect as of February 25th, 2019.

Our new mailing and location address is:

503 – 333 Terminal Avenue
Vancouver, BC
V6A 4C1

Main & Terminal Skytrain Station
located to the right of the building a few
blocks away.

 

Our telephone and fax numbers will remain the same as will our email contacts.

We will be moving only several blocks from our current location so any disruption should be minimal if any at all.

Distance Education Students, please make sure to update your records with the new mailing address for assignment submissions. Always make sure to keep copies of all your work.

A Canada Post re-direction will be in place as a safety precaution in the event that assignments are accidently mailed to the old campus location. Again postal re-direction is necessary but cannot fully guarantee that we will receive all re-directed mail, therefore, please keep copies of all correspondence as you should be already.

Thank you!
