Administrative history

-Opened in 2001 by Mission School District 75 through core funding from the BC Ministry of Education, Riverside College was originally known as Riverside Trades, Training and Career Centre (abbreviated Riverside Centre).

-The school was the first in the province to offer a combination of a pre-trades training program and a high school graduation program, enabling students to complete their high school education while preparing for an apprenticeship in a trade or a career training program.

-In 2010, the school moved from its initial location on the Lougheed Highway to a newly renovated purpose built facility capable of accommodating 350 students situated on the corner of Stave Lake Street and Dewdney Trunk Road.

-The school’s programs include training for auto service technician, carpentry, plumbing, cosmetology hairstylist, professional cook, community support worker and business support specialist.
