Kelowna is a city in the province of British Columbia, Canada, located in the south. In the Okanagan Valley, it is on the eastern coast of Okanagan Lake, surrounded by provincial parks, pine forests, wineries, orchards, and mountains. More than 20 vineyards in the area provide wine tours and tastings.
Focus College has collaborated with the University of Fraser Valley to establish a pathway that allows successful graduates of the Advanced Certificate in Business to continue their education by transferring to UFV and enrolling in the General Studies Diploma program. Students who complete the General Studies Diploma can apply to UFV's Bachelor of Integrated Studies programme to pursue a four-year degree.
