Program Overview

What Centennial College says about their program:
"Centennial College's Hospitality and Tourism Administration program will prepare you for an industry that Tourism HR Canada projects will grow to 2.1 million jobs, exposing a labour and skills shortage in more than 400 job types in accommodation, food and beverage, transportation, entertainment and travel services. Ontario visitor spending in 2019, meanwhile, is projected to surpass $31 billion, supporting 188,000 businesses and 391,000 jobs. In addition to that, tourism employs one in 10 people, generates 10 per cent of global gross domestic product and is one of the fastest growing global industries. Canada even broke records for numbers of visitors in 2017 and 2018."
