Toronto, November 22, 2013 – The members of the Board of Governors of Collège Boréal are meeting in Toronto this weekend for their annual retreat. This work session, bringing together Boréal’s Board and management team, will initiate the strategic planning process for 2015-2020.
“Collège Boréal’s Board of Governors is proud of the many achievements, successes and the growth in the Central-Southwestern region since 2002. Therefore, it was essential that we come here to begin the important exercise of planning the strategic direction of the Collège for the next five years”, notes Monique Rocheleau, Chair of the College’s Board of Governors.
In 2002, the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities and Collège Boréal reached an agreement, thus ensuring the establishment and maintenance of a location dedicated to offering college training in French in Toronto. Eleven years later, almost 40,000 individuals have benefitted from services and training; indeed, Collège Boréal now employs some 200 employees who offer 21 postsecondary programs in French throughout Central-Southwestern Ontario. “These are tangible signs of Collège Boréal’s strong presence and permanence in this region”, adds Ms. Rocheleau.
In this light, and working in collaboration with its college and university partners, Collège Boréal wishes to complete the establishment of a Francophone postsecondary environment in Toronto to serve the Central-Southwestern region. In the meantime, preparations for Collège Boréal’s 20th anniversary celebrations, planned for 2015, are underway; these celebrations will truly reflect the key strategic thrusts outlined in the brand new five-year strategic plan.
