Parents / Family
What is awaiting them?
As a matter of fact, what awaits your daughter or your son at Collège Boréal is a family…a family composed of members committed to your child’s success.
This commitment is translated through unequalled learning support services, including:
• tutoring, advice on work and study methods
• support services for particular needs
• counselling services (academic, professional and personal growth)
• a welcome service for foreign students
• health services
• essential services on campus (at the main campus, in Sudbury)
- medical clinic
- dental clinic
- food bank
- and even a massage therapy clinic!
• A Technical Support Centre also provides individual support to meet the needs of each student with respect to technology use;
• opportunites for personal, intellectual, social and cultural development.
Although intellectual development is important, at Collège Boréal we also encourage the participation of all our students and staff in sports, social and cultural activities… which makes us a close-knit community with common interests and successes and shared goals. Our cultural experiences go beyond geographical borders.
On an emotional level, it goes without saying that your child will evolve and gradually gain assurance. You should expect increased maturity and resourcefulness from your child and a much clearer vision of his or her own future. Postsecondary studies essentially work to achieve movement towards total independence.
A visit is appropriate…. Come see our facilities by arranging a meeting at a time that suits you. You are always welcome!
In addition, it's important to encourage your daughter or son to take part in activities such as “student for a day”, the “college information tour program”, etc.
With its programs in health sciences, technology, trades, business and social sciences, Collège Boréal knows how to prepare its students for the workplace!
Collège Boréal is also a college of applied arts and technology. It covers a wide geographical territory and has seven campuses to better serve the francophone population. Our programs are varied and have an approximate length of 30 weeks to three years.
Most programs include internships or work placements during the studies.
At Collège Boréal, we are committed to the success of your children!
And with good reason! For the past eight years, Collège Boréal has been in first place in terms of the percentage of students graduating among all the province's community colleges, both anglophone and francophone. With an average rate of 77.3% (versus 65.1% in the rest of Ontario), Collège Boréal has not only the highest percentage of student success, but the graduates are also the most satisfied with their college experience. So for the seventh time in 11 years, Collège Boréal has the highest graduate satiisfaction rate wiht an average of 85.2% (versus 79.8% for the province as a whole).
In spite of the economic recession and the significant challenges encountered in some fields of the primary sector, Collège Boréal has the highest graduate placement rate of all the community colleges in Northern Ontario (86.5% against a provincial average of 84.8%).
As you can see, these excellent results bear witness to the importance that we place on your children's studies and on their success!

How to go about finding accommodation in the region
At the Sudbury campus, Collège Boréal places at the diposal of its students two residences, the most recent of which was just opened in August, 2010. The residences, which can accommodate 138 persons, are located only steps from the main building on campus. We also offer an Internet service listing accommodation available, as well as search tools for this purpose.
You can obtain help in your accommodation search by consulting the campus office for your region.
As a parent and a “payer”, what type of information am I allowed to obtain?
As a government organization, Collège Boréal is subject to the Privacy and Access to Information Act. This law protects the private life of students about whom Collège Boréal has information. Collège Boréal will not transmit any information related to a student’s record without the written permission of the student concerned.
A personal and academic information disclosure form is available to students through the student portal Mon Boréal. This form must be properly completed and must include the original signature of the student AND of a witness, to be considered official. Only the presence of this official document in the student’s record will be acceptable as a “student permission” for disclosure of information about the student.
As far as generic information on our programs, services, policies or other is concerned, we will be happy to communicate the details at any time.
All fee reimbursements will be made in the student’s name at the address provided by the student. Parents wishing a reimbursement in their name will need to follow up with their child so that he or she provides a written notice to this effect.
What are the next steps?
The major steps of the admission and registration process are as follows:
• confirm the program choice online at Services d'application des Collèges de l'Ontario at collegesdelontario.ca as soon as possible;
• make sure to meet all admission conditions written in the offer if it is conditional;
• choose a tuition fee payment mode via the student portal and pay the required deposit between now and the date stipulated in the college calendar;
• details for when college starts are sent to the student by email, on the student portal, and on the USB key which has been given to him or her;
• present yourself at the Collège on the first day of the semester (see college calendar).
If you are unsure about any part of the admission or registration process, we'll be happy to answer your questions. Please communicate with our Bureau des admissions et registrariat at 1-800-361-6673 or 705-560-6673. The information will be sent electronically to students who confirm their choice.
How can I support my child?
Family support is important for students at all times, but particularly for those leaving their family home for the first time.Aside from financial aid, maintaining regular communication is certainly beneficial. Ongoing support in the decisions of your young adult will allow him or her to grow towards independence. Small gestures such as gift packages containing comfort food, college supplies and other treats; gift cards or smartcards from Cooperative Boréal that allow easy purchases at the cafeteria or library; movie passes to the local cinema; and so on. These are just some of the ways you can support a memorable college experience.
