Vancouver, BC – Langara College is proud to be recognized in the Vancouver Courier’s Annual Stars of Vancouver Readers’ Choice Awards. Langara placed first in the category of Continuing Studies Institutions.

“I’d like to send a sincere thank-you to everyone who voted for Langara Continuing Studies for this Readers’ Choice Award,” shared Daniel Thorpe, Dean, Continuing Studies. “This award is a really significant honour for all of us as it represents the opinions of the people who matter most - our students. With so many excellent programs in Vancouver, it's an honour indeed to be recognized in this way.”

Votes for STARS of Vancouver were gathered from the Courier’s 106,000 readers through a poll conducted in the newspaper and online. A special section in the publication celebrating this year’s winners was released today and a STARS of Vancouver pocket guide has been distributed to coffee shops throughout the city.

“We honestly believe we offer the most comprehensive and highest quality range of life-long learning options in the city and it really is tremendous to receive this indication that you feel the same way,” said Thorpe. “Thanks again to the readers and to the Courier staff who made this possible.”

Langara also thanks our volunteers, instructors, and staff for their support and contribution to an ever-growing Continuing Studies program and sends congratulations to fellow winners and nominees.
