Collège Boréal to offer a new culinary arts and cooking program at the Timmins campus

Timmins, February 11, 2014 – As of September 2014, Collège Boréal will offer a new training program in field of culinar y arts and cooking (1 year) at its Timmins’ campus. This initiative will provide students with the opportunity to learn to how to prepare refined and healthy dishes while learning about the necessary safety and sanitary conditions required in this type of work environment. Once they have completed this program, they will have access to a variety of job prospects in a number of sectors including institutional kitchens (seniors’ residences, hospitals, etc.), hotels, restaurants and tourists resorts.

This program illustrates Collège Boréal’s willingness to offer innovative educational opportunities that truly meet the needs of the local workplace. Jean-Paul Aubé, Director of the Conference Centre at the Days Inn, enthusiastic welcomes this initiative: “Local entrepreneurs here in Timmins find it somewhat difficult to recruit qualified personnel in Northern Ontario. This training program to be offered by Collège Boréal is very well adapted to the realities of the workplace. Furthermore, I will be most happy to welcome these students during their learning process and am looking forward to building on this partnership.”

Collège Boréal President, Pierre Riopel, is most pleased to note that, once again, Boréal’s philosophy shines throughout all its campuses: “Collège Boréal diligently works to offer quality, adapted education in order to meet the needs of local communities. Our students’ success drives us to offer only the best!” It should be noted that renowned professionals will offer the courses and that hands-on instruction will take place in a professional kitchen equipped with state-of-the-art technology available at the Timmins campus.

The coming year will also be most important as Collège Boréal prepares to celebrate its 20th anniversary. The institution’s new Strategic Plan will be unveiled in the course of the upcoming celebrations of this event.
