About Pacific Link College

Pacific Link College (PLC) has been innovating the education landscape in Canada by building programs and partnerships that lead students to the careers of which they dream. Our success in post secondary education has made us one of the fastest-growing institutions in Canada. Our specialty is international students, for whom we have built student support from recruiting to academics to co-op and post-graduate care.

Mission, Philosophy and Values

Pacific Link College is committed to providing quality education that empowers students with the knowledge, skills, and values they need to succeed in today’s dynamic world. Our mission is to foster a supportive and inclusive learning environment that encourages intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, creativity, and innovation. We strive to develop global citizens who are equipped to make a positive impact on their communities and the world. For this, we have a plan to establish our presence in over 100 countries by 2025. Our goal is to prepare students for rewarding careers and lifelong learning, and to promote excellence in education through ongoing innovation and collaboration with other prestigious universities and colleges in Canada, as well as globally. We are dedicated to providing accessible, affordable, and high-quality education to students from diverse backgrounds from over 50 countries, and to promoting social and economic development through education.


Established in 2011, PLC began by focusing on language instruction, which to this day is offered to international students. After opening its first career-centered campus in Guildford, Surrey, British Columbia, PLC quickly opened its second campus in neighboring Burnaby as we saw the rapid expansion of the college recruiting and support teams across the globe.


PLC works with multiple academic partners in Canada and worldwide. In Canada, PLC works with language schools and cultural institutions, as well as post secondary institutions. We were the first to have a limited-term partnership with the Centre for Digital Media in Vancouver in which PLC students got to experience prototyping digital strategies as part of a creative exchange. Current partners include Corpus Christi College and Trinity Western University. PLC also has multiple institutional partners across the globe, as well as offices in key strategic regions.

Future Plan and Vision

At Pacific Link College, our vision is to be a leading educational institution that inspires and transforms lives through innovative and personalized learning experiences. We aspire to create a vibrant and dynamic learning community that fosters excellence in education and innovation. Our goal is to provide a supportive and inclusive environment that encourages creativity, collaboration, and lifelong learning. We envision our graduates as global citizens who are leaders in their fields, contributing to the betterment of society and the world. We strive to be recognized for our commitment to excellence, academic integrity, and social responsibility, and to be a catalyst for positive change in education and beyond. We aim to create a brighter future for our students, our community, and the world through special scholarships such as Scholarships for Refugees in association with UNHCR as well as scholarships to Indigenous People in the Philippines and other countries.
