In 1970, we opened our 49 th Avenue campus and invited the community to make us their first choice for accessible, quality education.

Five decades later, Langara College is recognized as a leading undergraduate institution with a reputation for providing exceptional learning opportunities. Through the collective contributions of our outstanding faculty and staff, our programs and services continue to grow and innovate to meet the changing needs of our community.

By supporting our students' success, Langara has a measurable positive impact on our community. According to an economic impact study conducted for the College by EMSI in the spring of 2020, Langara's alumni, students, and operations together generate $966 million in added income to the region. For every $1 spent:

  • Diploma students gain $1.50 in lifetime earnings
  • Taxpayers gain $3.10 in added tax revenues and public sector savings
  • Society gains $8.70 in added provincial revenues and social savings

Langara is proud of the contributions we make to the lives of our students and to our community. We have built a strong friendship with the Musqueam people, on whose unceded traditional territory our College resides, give back through our amazing VOLT student volunteers, the Langara College Foundation, and our annual United Way Campaign, and work towards a more sustainable future.
