Tuesday, May 14, 2019 – Toronto – Ontario Council on Articulation and Transfer (ONCAT)
Collège Boréal has presented the first group of partners who will contribute to the implementation of the pedagogical plan for its future campus in the Distillery District.
They are Glendon College at York University, Laurentian University, Saint Paul University, the University of Ottawa, and the University of Moncton.
Partnerships with these institutions will allow students enrolled in programs offered by Collège Boréal to pursue a University degree directly upon graduation from college.
The intention is to offer these university programs at the new Collège Boréal campus at the Distillery District. The University of Moncton, because it is based outside Ontario, will be required to obtain legislative approvals prior to offering programs in this province.
Other university partners will join Collège Boréal in the Distillery District. All programs offered on the future campus will be articulated with a university program.
These partnerships aim to create bridges between college studies and university studies. In the preferred model, known as “2+2”, after two years of study in an approved college program, students receive a college degree and are eligible for a baccalaureate after two additional years of study in a university program corresponding to the completed college program. Other models will also be considered.
French-language and bilingual Canadian universities contribute to the construction of Collège Boréal’s new campus in Toronto.
Collège Boréal’s Toronto campus is scheduled to open in September 2021.
