CPC History

Catholic Pacific College, founded by Thomas Hamel in 1999 as Redeemer Pacific College, is a Catholic college located in Langley, BC. Since its founding the college has offered, and continues to offer, sections of Trinity Western University courses that students can count towards any one of 45+ TWU degrees. Students currently enrolled at TWU can take CPC courses at its own building, adjacent to TWU, while enjoying a vibrant Catholic campus culture.

In August of 2011, Dr. Christine Jones became the second president of the college, taking over from founding president Thomas Hamel.

In 2011, the college founded the Redeemer Pacific Chamber Choir, the Redeemer Pacific Student Association, and a college chapter of the Knights of Columbus.

On September 13, 2014, with the approval of Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB, the CPC Board of Governors voted to change the college's name from Redeemer Pacific College to Catholic Pacific College, and on June 3, 2015, the name change became official. The chamber choir, student association, and Knights' council were also rebranded as the Catholic Pacific Chamber Choir, the Catholic Pacific Student Association, and the Catholic Pacific Council of the Knights of Columbus. In September 2015, the Archbishop himself joined CPC's Board of Governors.

Catholic Pacific College is a member of the Cardinal Newman Society and is listed in the society's "The Newman Guide to Choosing a Catholic College" as a recommended faithful Catholic college. CPC follows the directives of the Magisterium of the Church in relation to Catholic post-secondary education, including St. John Paul II's encyclical Ex Corde Ecclesiae.
