Celebrating 20 years of excellence in Local Government Programs

September 21, 2016

Capilano University's Local Government Programs celebrated its 20th Anniversary in 2016, and current students, graduates, friends and supporters came together to mark the milestone on June 22 with a celebration event in Nanaimo at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre.

Since 1996, Capilano University has specialized in the development and delivery of practical, up-to-date programs for individuals working in local government in BC. Hundreds of local government employees from across BC have graduated from our programs.
