Norquest College



With the strength of a NorQuest College education, our learners have the skills and confidence to further their studies, begin new careers, provide better lives for their families, and make valuable contributions to society. At NorQuest, we have a unique ability to provide students with the skills Alberta needs in a supportive and inclusive environment. And with input from industry, business, and the public sector, we make learning relevant and rewarding. 

We understand that our learners come with varying levels of education and we assist them at the times and places that meet their needs, whether that is in the classroom, via distance learning or continuing education. We help identify their strengths, work on their areas of need, and move them towards exciting learning paths and life-changing careers.


Located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, the college embraces diversity and honors completeness. Its campuses and learning sites are located throughout the Edmonton region, including the Edmonton campus downtown and three regional campuses (Drayton Valley, Wetaskiwin, and Whitecourt). In addition to providing access to adult education in Edmonton, we also provide adult education across the region. Our services extend through 26 communities, from Drayton Valley in the southwest, to Whitecourt in the northwest, and to Wetaskiwin in the southeast. The Practical Nursing program at NorQuest College is one of Canada’s most popular programmes.

With the Rocky Mountains to the west and vast prairies to the east, Edmonton is well positioned to discover all the province has to offer. The city offers a range of experiences from a thriving arts and culture scene and die-hard sports to a spectacular river valley.
