Lakeland College: Maclean's College Profile

Lakeland College

Lakeland College | Vermilion, Alta. | Founded 1913


Lakeland College, Alberta’s first agricultural college, is home to a 1,700 acre student-run farm. The farm has both crops and livestock, and provides learning facilities for programs like crop technology and animal science.

In keeping with its agricultural roots, Lakeland’s older Vermilion campus has a countryside feel, set in a community of about 4,500 people. Its Lloydminster campus has a more urban feel, but retains a strong sense of community, as everything is housed under one roof. Both campuses have residence options for single students and students with families.

Lakeland offers opportunities for training and applied research in a variety of disciplines. The college offers university transfer programs in partnership with other institutions, as well as degree, diploma and certificate programs. Program areas include fire and other emergency services, environment, energy, and manufacturing. Lakeland’s strong interior design program is one of two programs of its kind in Canada endorsed by the National Kitchen and Bath Association.

Applied research at Lakeland focuses on energy entrepreneurship, agriculture, sustainable environments and buildings, as well as fire and emergency medicine. The college’s research hub is the Centre for Sustainable Innovation, which features facilities such as an Electronics and Fabrication Centre, Renewable Energy Learning Centre, and Livestock Research Facility.

Lakeland is Canada’s only inter-provincial college, serving Alberta and Saskatchewan residents.
