Campbell River

Ǧəlakasla NIC respectfully acknowledges we operate within the unceded traditional territory of the Wei Wai Kum, We Wai Kai and Kwiakah First Nations.

The Campbell River campus is located at 1685 South Dogwood St. and shares its location with Timberline Secondary. The shared location helps to ease the transition for students as they move from high school into post-secondary. It also provides opportunities for high school students to begin their Trades careers while still in high school, through the Youth Train in Trades program. The Campbell River campus is also home to the Third Course Bistro and the Centre for Applied Research, Technology and Innovation (CARTI).

Getting Here

NIC’s Campbell River campus is on one of the main north-south thoroughfares in Campbell River, making the location easily accessible. It is accessible by vehicle, bike and is served by BC Transit. Learn more about Campbell River.
