Douglas College

Douglas College is named after Sir James Douglas.

Born in Guyana in 1803, the son of a free Creole woman and a Scottish plantation owner, James Douglas was a motivated self-starter who placed a high value on education. Overcoming many obstacles, he worked his way up in the Hudson’s Bay Company. At the height of his career, James Douglas transitioned into politics, becoming the first governor of British Columbia. He is considered one of the province’s founding fathers. Today, one of Canada's most respected institutions, Douglas College serves over 22,000 students each year. The college has great teachers and friendly, supportive staff and a good campus life for students, staff, faculty and the community at the New Westminster and Coquitlam campuses.
