CÉGEP Heritage College is a community-driven higher learning institution. Our independent status was achieved in 1988, thanks to the involvement of engaged employees, parents, and students, who believed in the benefits of an English CÉGEP in the Outaouais. We have grown from 7 students in 1969 to nearly 1500 students in 2020.
Our students are what our College is all about. They are unique and will forever be part of our Heritage Family. To lose track of graduates would be a huge loss. By participating in our alumni network, you demonstrate pride and help increase Heritage College's visibility, reputation, and prestige.
On September 30, 2015, we celebrated the growth of The College and the creation of our new Alumni Network. Keeping in close contact and recognizing alumni for their excellence, accomplishments, and contributions is the best way we can bring our community together.
Our alumni network will:
Our alumni often credit Heritage for their success -- from the academic excellence, to the varied sports and cultural activities, to the dedication of the staff and faculty who were instrumental in shaping their learning experience.

“I remember Caitlin form day one when I visited her high school in Maniwaki. She approached my table, handed me her business card as a youth leader representative and said “I am interested in your college”. She blew my mind…not every day does a young 15 year old show such poise, intellect and initiative.”
