Niagara College was founded in 1967 at Welland to provide more career-oriented courses to students. This was the very first college in Canada to teach brewery and winery. The college had opened the Tourism Industry Development Center (TIDC) to train students in the hospitality and tourism sector as Canada witnessed a swell in tourism.
The college has three active campuses– the Welland Campus, the Niagara-on-the-Lake Campus, and the Taif Campus. The campus at Welland is situated at 100 Niagara College Boulevard.
