CNA Global

  • Overview
  • China Project


College of the North Atlantic’s international presence, CNA Global, is a brand that spans over 20 years and 20 countries around the globe. CNA Global, in its simplest terms, impacts the economic and social fabric of a country by leveraging our teaching, learning and curriculum to create enhanced capacity in education.

The leadership provided through CNA Global has assisted foreign institutions and governments to develop their educational and curriculum needs so they may build and support growth in their economies. This educational capacity building helps strengthen the college’s brand, provides real world experience for our students and faculty, and recognizes Newfoundland and Labrador’s role as global citizens.

Our international training initiatives have included partnerships in countries such as Antigua, Argentina, Barbados, Gaza/West Bank, Guyana, India, Jamaica, Jordan, Latvia, Libya, Lithuania, Malaysia, Pakistan, Peru, Qatar, Russia, Tanzania, Thailand, Vietnam, Yemen among others.

Specifically, our relationship in the State of Qatar is one that is of interest to most. Over two decades ago, Qatar’s government embarked on a new vision to enhance the employability of Qatari nationals, and to make gains toward building a knowledge-based society. CNA Global has been a part of this vision for more than 20 years. The establishment of this partnership, through the creation of CNA-Qatar, was a great human experience.

At first glance, two vastly different cultures found common ground, developed, and built a shared vision, shared values, and a solid relationship together that included joint oversight. The entire project was an equal partnership with trust, integrity, and friendship as the key building blocks.

The breadth and depth of our nationally and internationally recognized programming is unparalleled. We continually monitor industry needs to offer programs that are timely and relevant. As a result, people from throughout the world are coming to us for their educational and training needs. And College of the North Atlantic delivers.


China Project

加拿大北大西洋学院的前身最早为1963年遍布全省的各“区职业学校”(DVS: District Vocational Schools)。这些职业学校在随后三十多年的发展中与其它几所新建的成人学习中心以及社区学院合并为五个学院。1997年,这五个历史悠久的学院联合成立了现在的北大西洋学院。


College of the North-Atlantic is originated from the “District Vocational Schools” (DVS), which were established around the province in 1963. In the following 30 years, DVS, the Adult Grading Center, and a few other community colleges were merged into five different colleges. In 1997, these five colleges jointly formed College of the North Atlantic.

The CNA-China Project is a joint venture between Chinese Institutions and CNA, and was launched in 1999. So far, CNA has established partner relationships with a number of Chinese universities and colleges. Our partnership with Chinese institutions enables College of the North Atlantic to expand its geographic interaction to Asia and provide a formal platform for the students to start with a diploma and then transfer to undergraduate and graduate programs in North American universities. It also provides international working opportunities and working experiences for people involved such as administrators and faculty as well as promotes the educational and cultural exchange between Canada and China.
