VANCOUVER — Benjamin Colling is the new CEO of Canadian Tourism College (CTC) in B.C., as well as the new CEO of the Asia Pacific Education Group (APEDU) — an education investment company which owns and operates CTC.

With roots in the hotel industry — including positions at The Westin Bayshore Hotel and the opening of two Vancouver hotels — Colling has held leadership roles at The Vancouver Board of Trade, the Vancouver Film School and the Art Institute of Vancouver.

“I am humbled by the opportunity to work with a dedicated group of individuals at CTC in helping students gain access to the more than 192,000 tourism jobs in British Columbia and the millions of tourism-related jobs worldwide,” says Colling.

CTC is the longest-running tourism college in Western Canada and offers unique hands-on training, including courses such as river rafting, heritage interpretation and wilderness training for the Adventure Tourism Diploma program and cabin firefighting, assisting travellers with disabilities and first-aid training for the Flight Attendant Diploma program.
