E-learning programs are ideal for students who work, have a family or who need to commute long distances, all factors which may prevent the pursuit of a traditional study program. Pursuing an online education at LaSalle College Vancouver also means attending classes between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. PST. This allows students just enough time to finish work, return home, have dinner and get ready for class.

In a world where professional success is increasingly dependent on the continuous acquisition of new skills, the mission of our E-learning programs is for learners of all ages, background and geographical location to connect to modern communication networks and access online programs.
