BCIT Inspires

BCIT’s INSPIRE Campaign, the largest fundraising initiative in the Institute’s history, is envisioning, empowering and creating the future of technology-powered learning

Fall 2023 marks a time of exceptional growth for BCIT. With five campuses and more than 45,000 students enrolled each year, we are one of BC’s largest post-secondary institutes and well-positioned to advance opportunities for students, faculty, staff, alumni and industry partners. But this is a year like no other in BCIT’s history. Critical investments from provincial and federal government, and generous donors, have aided BCIT immensely in reducing barriers and improving pathways to education for all learners. Our future of connection people, industry and government to deliver leading-edge applied education is bright.

Meeting Labour Needs

The 2022 BC Labour Market Outlook reported 1 million job openings in the province over the next decade. More than 80% of those roles will require some form of post-secondary education, delivered in flexible, forward-thinking ways that meet the demands of today’s workforce. Shifting technology, like artificial intelligence and automation, and a brand-new demographic and socio-economic landscape are re-shaping workplaces—and BCIT is at the helm of innovative learning.

By joining BCIT, students embark on a learning path to contribute to real-world industry from day one and into the future. Choosing from fulltime or Flexible Learning to earn a microcredential, certificate, diploma, or degree, learners gain hands-on experience and industry connections to fast-track their careers before they even graduate.

Thank you.

BCIT inspires—but we couldn’t do it alone. A project of this magnitude and with such a tremendous impact on BCIT students, and BC’s workforce and economy, is only possible through the generosity and philanthropy of our donors.

“On behalf of BCIT, I am honoured to recognize the donors who support the Trades and Technology Complex,” says Dr. Jeff Zabudsky, President, BCIT. “Their philanthropic partnership makes it possible for BCIT to continue connecting learners with the industry-relevant tools, skills and spaces they need to succeed in the trades and technology sector—benefiting our communities and advancing the growth of the province.”
