About Pacific Link College Burnaby Campus

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
PLC has always emphasized providing quality, innovative, practical education. These factors are key in helping students succeed in their goals: most notably in getting employment. PLC has done all this via a strong focus on student services and assistance, as well as learning strategies that combine teaching by industry leaders with guest lectures and industry visits. Co-op placement in the industry also plays a key role in student success; hence PLC has a dedicated co-op department to guarantee placement. Starting with the launch of its career programs, PLC also emphasized the importance of diversity in students, faculty, and staff.

Burnaby Campus
Burnaby is right in the centre of the Lower Mainland – 15 minutes from downtown Vancouver – and is truly a multicultural city with many people from around the world. It stretches from the mighty Fraser River to the North Shore Mountains, with lots of shopping, businesses, as well as lakes, parks, shorelines, forests, and trails for active and exploring people. We are located in 4980 Kingsway Unit 200, Burnaby, BC, V5H 4K7. The campus is conveniently central in the city with direct access to the main roads and Skytrain – the commuter above-ground transit system that takes you around the area in less than 30 minutes. The largest shopping complex in BC is also directly across the street — Metrotown – for any shopping, food, or entertainment, this is the place to be.
