School of Hospitality, Recreation & Tourism

We are action, adventure and hot, hot stuff!

The history of this school goes back to the early union of three pillar areas within the college, Hospitality, Recreation and Tourism. Now known as HRT. Delivering across these three categories, you will find programs in sport, fitness, recreation, nutrition, massage therapy, tourism, event, hospitality, baking and culinary. Experiential learning is the primary focus with industry experts teaching in leading edge facilities including the Humber Room, Food Truck and the Humber Centre for Healthy Living. Hands-on learning happens in class, in competitions, events, and in work placements. We proudly celebrate 50 years of student success.
