Welcoming by nature…

Explore the endless possibilities and opportunities that you can experience by studying in beautiful North-Eastern Alberta, Canada. With numerous beautiful lakes, boreal forests and an abundance of fauna and flora this park-like natural setting is an experience that will surely leave a lasting impression on you. A year-round outdoor playground, the variety of outdoor activities is as unique as each of our 4 seasons, spring summer, fall and winter. Whether you enjoy getting geared up to tackle nature by all terrain vehicle, 4x4, bike, boat, hiking, running or change the pace, relax and grab a blanket, a few friends and head outside to enjoy our dark skies (largest reserve in the world) to see the galaxies of stars and awe-inspiring northern lights the choices are endless.

Each of our campuses are located in unique towns with amazing stories and rich diverse histories waiting to be explored. With so many culturally diverse communities in our region opportunities to grow, create networks, build friendships and long-lasting relationships abound.  The long list of events, year-round, in the area gives ample opportunity to explore new areas, meet new people and become involved with your community happens almost seamlessly.

We acknowledge that Portage College’s service region is on the traditional lands of First Nation Peoples, the owners of Treaty 6, 8 and 10, which are also homelands to the Métis people. We honour the history and culture of all people who first lived and gathered in these lands.
