Education is a lifelong journey. The working world is changing faster than ever before and working Canadians of every age must learn constantly to change with it. Of course, as we juggle our personal lives, families, careers, and other obligations, it's essential that continuing education be convenient and able to adapt to our needs.

Downtown campus

Now, with a new part-time studies location on Bay Street in downtown Toronto, the school is making it easier than ever before to build and expand the skills today's business demands.

Focused, yet diverse offerings

Whether you need a single course, a series of courses, or a specific credential such as a diploma or graduate certificate, Seneca's Faculty of Continuing Education has the resources to get you where you need to be.

Career-focused education is critical to both those looking to stay relevant in a market that demands a highly-skilled workforce and also for those interested in entering or transitioning into newly emerging labour sectors.

Customizing curriculums for Canadian businesses

Career-focused education is about reflecting the reality of today's workplaces and anticipating where tomorrow's careers will be made. The shifting labour landscape is a terrain of growing demand for shorter-term and highly-focused credentials; that's why Seneca monitors changes in the labour market and is continuously reviewing and innovating their programs to keep on pace.
