On behalf of Musqueam, congratulations to the 2024 graduates, their families, and friends of snəw̓eyəɬ leləm̓ Langara. Our lands have long been places of learning, and Langara is situated on our unceded, ancestral, and traditional territory on what was once a Musqueam village. We have honoured that connection by gifting the College a name in our language, snəw̓eyəɬ leləm̓, which means “house of teachings.”

Message from Musqueam



Langara's Coat of Arms

Drawing inspiration from the Langara community, the coat of arms was designed to reflect Langara’s values of learning and discovery and includes elements of the surrounding community. It is used to represent the College at ceremonial occasions. Langara’s official coat of arms was unveiled at a campus ceremony in January 2015 by His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada. 

Details about the Coat of Arms


It's tradition.

Traditionally, graduates, faculty, staff, and distinguished guests have worn academic regalia such as a gown, hood, and mortarboard at convocation ceremonies as far back as the 14th century in England. At Langara, our President wears our presidential regalia a green gown with black and gold accents, and a black hood with white lining, gold trim, and green chevrons. The colours of the regalia are drawn from Langara's Coat of Arms. Members of the Langara Board of Governors wear our board regalia a black gown with green panels.

Langara College grants a variety of credentials including bachelor’s degrees, post-degree diplomas, post-degree certificates, associate degrees, diplomas, certificates, and citations. Our graduates wear black mortarboards and gowns with either a hood, stole, or tippet to represent their credential.
