It is a privilege to welcome you to Parkland College. This College is a wonderful place to be and I am sure that in your time here you’ll find out what makes us so great.

As the 21st century transforms the world into a knowledge-based society, there is a growing need for individuals to be well-educated and highly skilled. These global trends challenge communities and the post-secondary institutions that serve them. With four decades of adaptability and diverse educational and training options under our belt, Parkland College serves the needs of adult learners and industry partners in East Central Saskatchewan. We are committed to creating and delivering an innovative continuum of learning to stimulate individual, community and economic growth, and to providing and celebrating quality learning and service to students.

Premier Brad Wall’s Saskatchewan Plan for Growth to 2020 document released in 2012 challenges all of us to invest in people and infrastructure. The Trades and Technology Centre in Yorkton will do just that. This facility is an expansion of training to meet the high demand of industry for skilled tradespeople in East-Central Saskatchewan. After an ambitious and successful Capital Campaign and funding from the provincial government, construction got underway early in 2014. The building will be complete this May and the doors will open to students in September 2015.

Parkland College is the partner of choice for business, industry, and communities – together building and updating the skills and knowledge required for learner engagement and success. We are a learner-centered organization committed to accessibility, inclusion, and diversity. The entire Parkland team is ready to welcome you to any one of our five campuses in Melville, Yorkton, Fort Qu’Appelle, Canora, and Esterhazy.
