A major convergence centre
The Greater Sudbury plays the role of the regional capital of North-Eastern Ontario. Located in the heart of Ontario, at 390 km north of Toronto, 290 km east of Sault-Ste-Marie and at 483 km west of Ottawa. Sudbury was funded at the end of the nineteenth century, as a small train city, because of the vast mineral resources of the region; the city has continued to grow. Greater Sudbury has become an urban regional centre of great diversity. Sudbury possesses big shopping malls, numerous large scale companies; it is surrounded by provincial parks and 330 lakes (including Lake Ramsey, which is located at the centre of the town).
A flourishing French environment
The francophone community of the Greater Sudbury is very active and present: the “Theatre du Nouvel-Ontario”, the”Éditions Prise de parole”, Radio-Canada, “Le Voyageur” newspaper, “Le Loup-FM”, the “ACFO du Grand Sudbury”, the Health Community Centre of Sudbury, the Centre franco-ontarien de folklore, the Regroupement des gens d’affaires, the “Contact interculturel francophone de Sudbury”, the “Carrefour francophone” and many other organisations are present throughout the region. For more than 28% of the population of the greater Sudbury, French is the mother tongue and 39% of the population is bilingual (2006 census).
A city where life is good
In addition, to the prominent place it takes through its economy and demographics, the Greater Sudbury welcomes many cultural communities and is recognised for the welfare it brings to the population through all its creative activities. In fact, Sudbury is a cultural hub in French Ontario frequently visited by artists of national and international renown.

New programs and the expansion of the Sudbury campus
Now that the new Timmins campus has opened, we have begun to setup a Centre of Excellence for French and bilingual postsecondary studies in southern Ontario. This project is in collaboration with Glendon College of York University in Toronto.
In addition, the board of directors gave its approbation to realize determining initiatives for the Sudbury campus. Consequently, a new residence next to the one in place will be inaugurated in September 2010. Seventy students will be able to reside there.
Collège Boréal will lead an ambitious project within the society in order to enlarge its role and for the College to become a crossroad for French postsecondary studies in the region. This project is divided in many phases and requires financial help from public and private partners. We are presently waiting for an answer from the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities concerning this project.
The goal of the society project is to launch 22 new programs; we will construct or modify current infrastructures for this purpose. The addition of these new facilities will allow us to increase our student body, notably in health sciences, in training for trades and the arts scene.
The College intends to curb the cultural assimilation of Francophone’s, by increasing access to postsecondary studies, by extending its influence and becoming a mentor for the entire French population, including Franco-Ontarians, graduates of immersion programs, natives and French Metis, French speaking immigrants and Francophiles.
The accomplishment of this important project is an additional reason, for these French members of the population, to continue their French studies in northern Ontario.
