Over 300 graduates at Collège Boréal in Sudbury celebrate in style!

June 6, 2022 - Sudbury- Collège Boréal After two years of virtual graduations, it was time to have a ball in Sudbury as the 27th annual graduation ceremonies were celebrated in person.

Graduates were all smiles as they received their diplomas from President Daniel Giroux, who was visibly pleased to be able to present them in person. In all, 339 people will receive a diploma or a certificate from Collège Boréal during one of the 3 ceremonies organized in Sudbury to celebrate the event in style.

A look back at two emotional years

Each ceremony gave rise to touching moments: from the parents who exclaimed with joy and celebrated the success of their children to the student who came from elsewhere in search of a diploma in the hope of a better life. The graduate of the program of Computer Engineering Techniques Favour Massyrée Rose Camara made a point of thanking all her teachers, on behalf of her cohort. "Always listening, you offered us the chance to study in a warm, francophone environment, an environment that is like us."
