> Herzing College Ottawa

Empowering students since 1970

Herzing College is about much more than career training. Dr. Henry Herzing and his wife Suzanne founded the school back in 1965 with a very clear mission: to help hard-working people transform their lives through education, self-empowerment, and better job opportunities.

More than 55 years, 5 campuses, and thousands of successful graduates later, that mission is still going strong.

Herzing College Ottawa was one of the first campuses opened in Canada back in 1970. Since then, we have earned a reputation for quality diploma programs, expert instructors, and a uniquely caring atmosphere.

• Choose from 12 diploma programs in 5 different areas of study: Healthcare, Business, Legal, Design, and Technology.
• Online professional development certificates in Mediation, Arbitration, Human Resources, Emergency Management, Mental Health, Gerontology, and Digital Marketing.
• Quick, effective training based on the skills Ottawa employers want.
• Internships that provide real-world experience and fully prepare you for your first job.
• Flexible class schedules for busy, working students.
• Every Herzing student gets tuition “credits” they can use to take additional courses after graduation, tuition-free! We call it the Herzing Open Education Program (HOEP). Build new skills without spending more money.


Herzing College is deeply rooted in the Ottawa community. We have partnerships with numerous businesses and participate in several charitable organizations.

Herzing College is the title sponsor of the It Shouldn’t Hurt to Be a Child annual hockey tournament, an Ottawa tradition for over 30 years. The event has raised over $300,000 for Victims of Violence Canadian Centre for Missing Children, and Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario.

Our students also hold regular fund-raising events for:

• Youville Center, which supports teen mothers and their children
• Heart and Stroke Foundation
• Carefor Health and Community Services
• Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario
• Canadian Cancer Society


Herzing College Ottawa is more than just a school. We are a community. We are committed to improving people’s lives, both on and off campus. We welcome you to join us, and begin your journey toward a fulfilling career, a stronger sense of purpose, and a more secure future.
