Collège communautaire du Nouveau-Brunswick

Collège Communautaire du Nouveau-Brunswick | Bathurst, N.B. | Founded 1970

Located in Canada’s only officially bilingual province, Collège communautaire du Nouveau-Brunswick (CCNB) is an independent post-secondary institution that offers diploma, certificate, degree, trade and apprenticeship programs in French. Its five campuses are located in the province’s largest francophone regions: Bathurst, Campbellton, Dieppe, Edmundston and the Acadian Peninsula.

Students can choose from more than 80 programs that lead to careers in New Brunswick’s top employment sectors, including woodworking, fisheries, health sciences and mining technology. Through partnerships with industry leaders throughout Atlantic Canada, many of CCNB’s programs incorporate internships for on-the-job learning.

CCNB has been growing its innovation and research capacities through the CCNB-INNOV network alongside Springboard Atlantic Inc. and Tech-Access Canada’s network. Most programs at CCNB take one to three years to complete and are offered on campus or through distance learning. 

Although it does not offer on-campus residences, CCNB keeps a list of available accommodations around each campus. Students in Edmundston can apply to live at the Université de Moncton’s Louis-Cyr residence.
