La Cité is the largest French-language applied arts and technology school in Ontario, Canada’s most populated province. Created in 1989, it is situated in Ottawa, Canada’s capital.

Recognized for its practical trainings, La Cité offers more than 90 programs to some 4700 full-time francophone students from Ontario,french speaking communities in other parts of Canada and many foreign countries.

Working in a minority French environment in Ontario since opening, La Cité's mission is two fold. First, the school trains future generations of workers by giving students access to a quality postsecondary education in French (International equivalence European/African = minimum registration required, completed bachelor's degree), one that meets the needs of its clientele and of the labour market.

Second, by providing training, la Cité contributes to the development of its community by creating a francophone living environment, by being a leader in the French-speaking community and by supporting the economic, social and cultural development of its community.

M John Wills, former trainer at the FBI Academy, comments, on the website, about the Emergency institute (911) of La Cité:

"To say I was impressed with La Cite collégiale would be an understatement. Having taught at the FBI Academy for six years, I have a good idea of what is needed to prepare people for a career in public service/law enforcement. La Citécollégiale meets and surpasses the standards I would require to give students the best training possible."
