About the program
Champlain College Saint-Lambert is the only public English CEGEP to offer the three-year tuition-free Tourism program in the Greater Montreal area and will prepare you for exciting opportunities in the Tourism industry.
Tourism Management students will discover the field’s many facets, study the world and different cultures, learn how to use the most recent technology, and network with Montreal’s tourism business leaders. You will obtain an in-depth knowledge of hotel operations, customer service, tourism law, master financial tools for tourism operations, learn about strategic promotion within an internet culture, and how to evaluate tourism potential and interpret trends.
The opportunity to travel and experience the industry is a vital component of the learning experience in the program. Students will plan and partake in local, regional, national, and international trips to link theory and practice. Local field trips could lead you to visit significant industry players such as Air Canada and Air Transat, Queen Elizabeth Hotel, VIA Rail, and Tourisme Montreal. You could participate in conferences and regional competitions such as the Jeux du Tourisme. The yearly trip could take you to a faraway destination like Costa Rica, Iceland, France, Barbados, Czech Republic, England, Switzerland, Hungary, Panama, or China.
Tourism is an important sector of the Quebec, Canadian, and the world economy, contributing to over 735,300 jobs in Canada alone. Approximately 90% of students find employment through their two-month work-study session required at the end of the tourism curriculum.
