“We are honoured to receive Mr. Bernard Trottier, our MP, in this jewel in the crown of Francophone education in Toronto,” said Denis Hubert-Dutrisac, President of Collège Boréal. “The federal government’s confidence in Collège Boréal provides testimony to the tangible results we have attained over the last ten years in Central and Southwestern Ontario, and to the fact that we have exceeded our objectives year after year for the benefit of all Ontario Francophones.”
For his part, Mr. Trottier stated the reasons for his visit to 1 Yonge Street: “Our government is proud to support Collège Boréal and, in so doing, to highlight excellence in Francophone postsecondary education. Through our contribution, this new campus offers students in the Greater Toronto Area an outstanding college solution that meets the growing need for quality training in French.”
Since last June, the new Toronto campus has provided the students of Collège Boréal with twice the space and facilities they had before. With 10 specialized laboratories and 12 classrooms, including 3 equipped for videoconferences, the campus also incorporates the services of Collège Boréal’s Employment Options. Starting in January, the Pharmacy Assistant program will also be offered at 1 Yonge Street, and next September, the Dental Hygiene and Introduction to Arts programs. A total of 19 postsecondary training programs will be on the curriculum at the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year at the new Collège Boréal campus in Toronto.
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.
