"This is a great milestone for the NCCC and the College of New Caledonia in general.

"This celebration is a testament to the quality and relevance of our programming," said CNC president Henry Reiser in a press release.

University of Northern B.C.'s president called the campus a "beacon of excellence for leadership development in Quesnel" and one that has benefited the community.

"By having the College of New Caledonia and UNBC in the same facility, we are providing a wide array of post-secondary education options," said Daniel Weeks in a statement. "It's a partnership we're happy to celebrate with the residents of Quesnel."

To celebrate, the two have planned an invite-only event Friday and a public open house Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

"While we are celebrating the 10th birthday of our campus, CNC has really been in the community for closer to 40 years," said regional principal, Morgan Ross, in the same press release.

"As such, we would like to extend a great big thank you to the community for supporting us up to this point, and we know that we can expect the same in the years to come. Without the community we wouldn't have gotten to where we are today."
