Selkirk College's Resort & Hotel Management (RHOT) program will set you up with the skills you need to succeed in this dynamic industry. In 2019, the Canadian tourism industry generated approximately $106 billion in revenue.
COVID-19 is a defining moment for tourism and hospitality both locally in British Columbia, across Canada and the world. The ultimate impacts of COVID-19 on the tourism and hospitality industries are unknown for the 2020/2021 academic year.
The content of courses in the Hospitality and Tourism programs will refer to and discuss the crisis without making assumptions as to what might lie ahead. In response to previous crises such as 911 and SARS, the industry rebounded stronger than ever. We remain optimistic these industries will rebound again.
Our program teaches you solid business practices, human resources, leadership and marketing skills that will help to launch your career. You'll gain confidence to coordinate everything from exclusive parties and sporting events, to signature black-tie galas for thousands.

Learn from instructors with extensive experience and current industry knowledge and join the 95 per cent of our alumni working in the hospitality industry around the world.
Hospitality & Tourism Today
BC’s tourism industry is a powerful force. Tourism touches every part of the province and has become one of BC’s leading business sectors. With innovation and solid business practices this will never change.
Studies begin with an understanding of where tourism originates and encompass the supervision of hospitality facilities. Knowledge, skills and practices pertaining to the industry, such as the reception of guests, food and beverage services, recreation and convention planning, accounting, maintenance, supervisory and overall management techniques are topics covered. Communications and human relations are emphasized.
The objective of the program, through classroom instruction, practical lab training and work experience, is to enable students to develop the abilities, skills and attitudes to analyze situations objectively and to then make effective management decisions.
A guiding principle of the Resort and Hotel Management program is student-centered involvement through both classroom and project based learning.
