Collège Communautaire du Nouveau-Brunswick is a primarily francophone institution offering diploma, certificate, degree, trades and apprenticeship, and educational upgrading programs. In February 2015, CCNB showcased the strength of its programs in New Brunswick’s first-ever downhill skating race, called the Xtreme CCNB Race. Students from 10 programs, including building engineering technology, metal fabrication, and radiophonic communication, organized and ran the event, which drew more than 3,000 spectators. The event will be held again in February 2016, this time as part of the Red Bull Rider’s Cup circuit.
Most of CCNB’s 200 on-campus and online programs are delivered in French, although most campuses also offer programs in English. Program areas include business, arts and culture, mechanics and maintenance, justice, and specialized training in the fisheries sector. CCNB has five campuses, located in Bathurst, Campbellton, Dieppe, Edmundston, and the Acadian Peninsula. Though CCNB does not offer on-campus residence, it maintains a list of accommodations available around each campus.
CCNB’s research and innovation are in line with emerging priorities in New Brunswick’s economy, and focus on industrial and manufacturing sectors. Research is broken up into four strategic research centres: Metal Innovation and Technology Transfer; Eastern Canada Soil and Water Conservation; Biorefinery Technology; and support services for the composite materials industry. Research activities and industrial services, particularly in the areas of biotechnology and metalworking/welding, help repatriate skilled workers to, and retain them in, rural areas, as well as support start-up businesses. As a result, more than 25 specialized jobs have been created in two small New Brunswick municipalities over the past five years.
