Official Opening of the New Collège Boréal Campus in Toronto
Toronto – This morning, Collège Boréal officially inaugurated its new campus located at 1 Yonge Street in Toronto. The event took place in the presence of many dignitaries, including Glen Murray, the Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU), Rick Bartolucci, the Minister of Northern Development and Mines and Chair of Cabinet, and François Boileau, the French Language Services Commissioner of Ontario.
The new Collège Boréal campus in Toronto provides students with access to double the learning space and state-of-the-art technology. With 10 specialized laboratories and 12 classrooms, 3 of which are equipped for teleconferencing, this campus also integrates the Employment Options services that Collège Boréal provides.
“As we celebrate our 10th anniversary in the West South Central region of the province, the inauguration of this new campus in downtown Toronto is yet another proof of the recurring trust that the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities has in Collège Boréal,” declared Denis Hubert-Dutrisac, the President of Collège Boréal. This reminds us how, in 2002, the MTCU entrusted Collège Boréal with the provision of postsecondary services and programs in the entire region, extending its territory from the North to the West South Central region of Ontario.

Thanks to the new facilities inaugurated today, Francophones in Metro Toronto will now have access to a complete set of services, ranging from postsecondary programs to continuing education through employability and integration programs for immigrants, in one single location. For the last 10 years, client growth has increased exponentially in the Central-Southwestern region. Collège Boréal intends to pursue the development of its program offering and reach, within the next years, a breadth of French-Language programs comparable to that of the Eastern and Northern part of the province.
Highest graduation rate and graduate satisfaction rate across Ontario!
For the ninth time in the last 10 years, Collège Boréal has the highest graduation rate of Ontario’s 24 colleges of applied arts and technology. Furthermore, Collège Boréal also attained the highest graduate satisfaction rate of all these Anglophone and Francophone community colleges. This achievement confirms 8 first places obtained over the last 11 years. Established in 1995, Collège Boréal is a French-language postsecondary training and learning institution dedicated to the development and growth of Northern and Central-Southwestern Ontario communities.
