The Canadian Centre for Verbatim Studies (CCVS) is Canada's only college specializing in the training of court reporters. Our Court Reporting program and Realtime Court Reporting program are both ministry-approved, and we follow the Private Career Colleges Act. Our Realtime program meets the rigorous National Court Reporters Association (NCRA) certification standards.
CCVS is the nation’s first school of its kind. Students from across Canada can take advantage of the flexibility of our online program. Students around the GTA also have the option to come in one night a week to work with the steno instructor. Our school is located just two blocks south of the vibrant Yonge & Bloor intersection.

The average working reporter in the industry is currently between 50 and 55 years of age. Canada desperately needs a new generation of work-ready court reporters now. The mandate of our program is to address this need, and to replenish and fortify the ranks of the industry with expertly trained, highly skilled reporters and captioners. By its mere existence, CCVS doubles the nation’s potential yield of court reporters. Of equal importance, our exclusive practicum (work-study) helps our valued students to adjust realistically to the demands of working in the field. We’re committed to producing trained professionals and to placing those professionals in lucrative and rewarding positions after graduation.
