“The prerequisite for motivation and success in any endeavor is a BIG vision for your future. If you’re stuck in the past, you’re really in trouble.” B. N. Norton.
The opportunity to birth Canadian Imperial College is inspired by this quote of B.N. Norton. Canadian Imperial College is the manifestation of the BIG picture, which was hitherto a dream in our heads. The search for a sustainable solution to the dynamic challenges that the world faces today, requires that we look beyond the surface.We must employ the most powerful tool we have, ‘our minds’, to see further and create a better future.
Who we are
Canadian Imperial College is conveniently located in the heart of Edmonton, the capital city of Alberta, Canada. Edmonton is one of the youngest and fastest-growing cities in the country. It is the northernmost city in North America with a population of over one million people. This spectacular city welcomes thousands of visitors each year: tourists, students, workers, and many choose to make Alberta their new home. The largest mall in Northern Canada is situated in Edmonton. Many graduates love to reside in Canada because residents of the province have the highest average weekly earnings- 22% above the national average.
