BCIT is integral to the economic, social and environmental prosperity of British Columbia.
BCIT's mission is to serve the success of learners and employers by providing high quality technical and professional education and training that supports our graduates as practitioners and as citizens, and by advancing the state-of-practice.
About British Columbia Institute of Technology
The BCIT Foundation secures gifts that support BCIT Schools and students in financial need in creating opportunities and enhancing the learning experience of our students.
More than 47,000 students attend BCIT annually, making us one of the largest post-secondary institutes in our province. Sadly, not all 47,000 students will complete their studies due to lack of money.
Financial support transforms the lives of deserving individuals by providing them with the means to pay for critical expenses such as tuition, textbooks and other necessities in order to complete their studies.
BCIT educates grads, who build our homes, workplaces, schools and hospitals; build and run our transport, power and communication networks; they work in all areas of business and help provide vital healthcare. Together, we have helped improve the quality of life in BC and across Canada for everyone’s benefit.
Students describe their BCIT experience as exciting and intense. Employers consistently report that our educational model prepares graduates with team-building and problem-solving skills that empower them to be fully ready on their first day of employment.
