We have an impressive track record as a community leader.

Our unique City School by Mohawk breaks down barriers to education and employment by bringing the college directly into Hamilton neighbourhoods to offer free courses, training and employment services. The credits students earn at City School apply to Mohawk academic and pre-apprenticeship programs.
