Its main administration and largest campus sites are in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. In addition, other campuses are located in Chatham and Wallaceburg. In 2007, St. Clair College expanded to downtown Windsor by purchasing the former City of Windsor owned Cleary International Centre. In 2009, St. Clair College bought the former City of Windsor owned Salvation Army building in downtown Windsor for $1. With a $5 million grant from the federal government the building was turned into a state of the art journalism school; the first of its kind in Canada. In 2014 St. Clair College built a new sports complex at the main campus, called the SportsPlex.
The college has its roots in the Western Ontario Institute of Technology, founded in 1958 to supplement the then-Ryerson Institute in Toronto, now Ryerson University. With the advent of the Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology, St. Clair was founded in 1966; the two institutions were merged a year later. Growth of the college has generally paralleled that of Windsor. Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology were established on May 21, 1965. It is an Ontario College of Applied Arts and Technology. The school was founded in 1966 as part of a provincial initiative to create many such institutions to provide career-oriented diploma and certificate courses, as well as continuing education programs to Ontario communities.
St.Clair College celebrated its 50th anniversary in September 2017.

Strike of 2017
Effective Monday, October 16, 2017 at 12:01am, the team bargaining on behalf of the province's 24 Colleges and the OPSEU union representing 12,000 full time faculty, partial load faculty, counsellors and librarians, could not reach an agreement, and all faculty entered a work stoppage. As of 12:40pm, November 6, 2017 after a number of days of bargaining, Ontario colleges presented a new offer of settlement to OSPEU. The colleges asked that faculty be able to vote on this offer of settlement and requested the Ontario Labour Relations Board to arrange a vote. The colleges asked OPSEU to suspend the strike in order to have faculty return to the classroom whilst the vote was being arranged. Classes, however, remained suspended. On November 21, the strike was lifted and classes were resumed, however, many initial issues were not resolved.
