Welcome to University Canada West!

As the president of University Canada West (UCW), it’s my pleasure to welcome you to our physical and online campuses.

UCW was founded in 2004 as a business and technology-focused university. Our faculty stand out for their hands-on business experience, and the programs we offer are designed to stay abreast of the latest trends in business, entrepreneurship and innovation. In a world where change is the only constant, UCW gives its students a solid foundation for their careers.

But what we also offer, above and beyond the classroom, is an exceptional urban campus experience. Vancouver is an oceanfront metropolis set against a backdrop of snow-capped mountain peaks. Our two campuses are located in the heart of the city, a short walk away from either the beach or the business district. Our new campus is situated in the recently-completed Vancouver House development, an architectural marvel hailed the world over for its structural and design innovations.

Once there, you’ll meet students from more than 100 different countries. They’ve all chosen to study here in Canada, and they’re discovering what our local students have always known: Vancouver is a tremendous city, and UCW offers one of its best learning experiences. Our campuses and our faculty and staff foster a cohesive student community that’s working and studying together and supporting each other.

COVID-19 has changed much about the world and created uncertainty for many, but UCW has emerged from the pandemic better prepared than ever. Our COVID-19 response is designed to keep our campus safe for everyone.

At UCW, community is important to us. We are a dynamic university that’s undergoing important changes of its own: growing our faculty, creating new programs and refurbishing our space. If you have questions, comments or ideas to share, I invite you to get in touch with me through a new dedicated email address here in the Office of the President which will serve as a virtual suggestion box: [email protected]. I look forward to hearing from you.
