2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of Durham College (DC), one of the first colleges established under the Ontario college system. The college has come a long way since 1967. From 16 portable classrooms and 205 students to more than 30,000 students, campuses in Oshawa and Whitby and a learning site in Pickering, DC has been meeting the changing needs of students, industry and government for almost five decades.

As our 50th anniversary unfolds, we will be posting news, updates and event information right here on this site. There will also be an opportunity to share stories and photos about amazing starts that began at DC. More information on our 50th anniversary is also available through your favourite social media platforms too including TwitterFacebook and Instagram using #DC50.
