The Art Institute of Vancouver’s West Georgia and Dunsmuir Street campuses will relocate in 2009, to be joined by the Burnaby campus in 2010. The International Culinary School at The Art Institute of Vancouver, along with the Culinaria Restaurant, will remain at its present location in the Canaccord Tower, on Granville Street in downtown Vancouver.

“We believe that our new custom built campus will benefit all students and staff, with its accessible location and modern facilities,” said Tom Kim, President of The Art Institute of Vancouver.

The move is reflective of the organization’s commitment to continual improvement and a learner-centered environment. Tom Kim adds, “We are extremely proud of our success so far and this move is part of our dedicated efforts to help our students and graduates achieve excellence and employment in their chosen creative careers.”
