The Conestoga College of Applied Arts and Technology was founded in 1967, one of several such institutions established by the Ontario government at the time to grant diplomas and certificates in career-related, skills-oriented programs.

A new nursing program leading to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.Sc.N.) degree is now available at the College.
