An investment in everyone’s future

Access & Inclusion

Empowering the next generation of creators, innovators and doers requires an open and diverse environment that breaks down the walls preventing new ideas and solutions from coming to fruition. At BCIT, we will continue to build a community that supports everyone.

Remove barriers to entry

By creating a range of new and innovative awards, bursaries, and scholarships, we can remove the financial and other barriers that can prevent exceptional students from accessing the transformational education they desire.

Welcome one and all

BCIT is, and will continue to be, an inclusive environment that welcomes a diversity of ideas, people, cultures, and backgrounds. We will ensure our community reflects the society in which we live. And we will provide people with the support they need to thrive at BCIT and beyond.

Supporting Indigenous students

We are committed to working in partnership with Canada’s Indigenous communities to infuse Indigenous knowledge and practices throughout BCIT and within our partnerships to mobilize broader societal change.
