About Northern College - Kirkland Lake Campus

Northern College of Applied Arts and Technology, popularly known as the Northern College is located in Timmins, Ontario Canada. One of the largest applied arts and technology college, it was founded in 1967.  The catchment area extends across 58,000 square miles or 160,000 square kilometres. It serves more than 65 communities within North Eastern Ontario through four campuses situated in Timmins (Porcupine), Kirkland Lake, Moosonee, and Haileybury. It receives an annual enrolment of approximately 1,790 full-time and annual part-time and continuing education exceeding 11,000, and 165 apprenticeship enrolments. The pride of Northern College lies in offering students a rich learning environment including a brilliant variety of experiential learning opportunities through co-op programs.

Having over 75 full-time, part-time, certificate, diploma and apprenticeship programs, and hundreds of in-class, web-based, and correspondence courses, students are sure to find the right programs that fit their ambitions. The college also provides post-secondary and career entrance preparation programs and academic upgrading to help students steer in the direction they want to go.

Northern College - Kirkland Lake Campus
The School of Welding Engineering Technology at the Kirkland Lake Campus keeps building on its international reputation as a leader in the field of welding education and training. We were the first in North America to become an authorized training body for the International Institute for Welding (IIW). The IIW is recognized in 56 countries! Kirkland Lake rarely sees a dull moment. From award-winning festivals to concerts by the hottest musicians, Kirkland Lake knows how to entertain. In fact, the community’s biggest festival of the year, Winter Carnival, is so jam-packed with excitement that it was recently declared one of Ontario’s Top 100 Festivals by Festivals and Events Ontario. Kirkland Lake’s Annual Homecoming is no slouch either, attracting amazing musicians like The Sheepdogs, Carly Rae Jepsen, The Trews and Sam Roberts. Imagine being able to see your favorite bands in a venue where even in the back row the artists feel up-close and personal.

When you’re not busy attending local events, you may want to check out Kirkland Lake’s athletics facilities. You’ll find tennis courts, baseball diamonds, soccer fields, a golf course, curling club, skate park and even a 1,000 seat arena. The community is home to active hockey, soccer, baseball and figure skating leagues, providing year-round sports entertainment! Fans of non-competitive athletics will also feel right at home, with access to the beaches of Crystal Lake and the campgrounds of Esker Lakes Provincial Park. Need we even mention the hunting, fishing and power-sport opportunities?

Kirkland Lake features a bustling downtown and shopping mall. You’ll also find Hockey Heritage North, a museum that serves as a monument to the area’s history of creating strong NHL players and all around love for the sport. Kirkland Lake is just a hop, skip and a jump away from the Quebec border, making it a breeze to hit up all of the excellent shopping and activities in Rouyn-Noranda.
