The Canadian Coast Guard College (CCGC) offers unique learning opportunities for Officer Cadets and other Canadian Public Service employees involved in marine safety and environmental protection.

The Canadian Coast Guard College is situated in Sydney, Nova Scotia, which is located on Cape Breton Island.

As future officers of the Canadian Coast Guard (CCG), officer cadets are trained to help protect Canada's 243,000 km ocean coastline, its vast ocean resources and the individuals who go to sea.

The traditional classroom is not the exclusive place of study at the Canadian Coast Guard College. Hands-on training comprises much of the course work as well. Officer cadets receive practical training using complex simulators and are often required to perfect their skills while at sea.

A state of the art training facility, committed and professional staff, along with a beautiful setting combine to create an ideal marine training environment.
