Outdoor recreation enthusiasts will love Selkirk’s setting. The west Kootenay region of British Columbia boasts mountains and rock climbing, trails, water activities like kayaking, fishing, and paddle boarding in breathtaking national parks. Selkirk is B.C.’s oldest regional college, and offers a comprehensive range of more than 60 associate degree, diploma, certificate, and apprenticeship programs.

Selkirk’s main campus is in Castlegar. It has three additional campuses in Nelson, another campus in Trail, and three learning centres in Grand Forks, Kaslo, and Nakusp. The Tenth Street campus in Nelson offers dorm-style student residences, while single-room suite style accommodations are available at Castlegar.

Two key research hubs at Selkirk are the Columbia Basin Rural Development Institute (RDI) and the Selkirk Geospatial Research Centre (SGRC). The former studies how to fortify rural communities in the Columbia Basin Boundary region of B.C., while the latter specializes in studying geospatial technologies as solutions to environmental and socio-economic issues. Selkirk also supports applied research in a number of other areas, including peacekeeping at its Mir Centre for Peace.
