About Selkirk College
Selkirk is not only BC’s oldest regional college but the first created through a community referendum. The very first day of classes at Selkirk College were held in temporary buildings, abandoned bunkhouses at Celgar, a local pulp and paper mill.
It was September 1966 but the college’s roots trace back to 1964 – 1965, during which discussions and forums finally resulted in a regional vote in favour of funding BC's first regional college.
