Creating Pathways Since 1973

As Edison College Canada, formerly known as Victoria College of Art, approaches a momentous milestone our 50th anniversary— we reaffirm our mandate to provide the highest quality of education and industry-relevant training, which has already propelled thousands of students into rewarding careers. In addition to our programs in Visual Arts, as of this fall, we will launch in-demand programs in Healthcare and Business, to help alleviate the shortage of personnel in these sectors. 

The Edison Team joins me in extending a heartfelt “Thank You” to our students, alumni, professors, staff and employers for staying the course with us since 1973. We could not have done this without you! 

– Eddie Jonathan, President
