In keeping with Collège Boréal’s provincial mandate, its Board of Governors now comprises 8 women and 7 men from diverse professional and regional backgrounds.

I’m proud to serve on the Board of such a dynamic and innovative institution as Collège Boréal, and I thank the Governors for the confidence they have placed in me for a second consecutive year. The diversity and considerable experience of this group of Governors, who come from the four corners of the province and a variety of fields, as well as their unwavering dedication, are so many strengths which will contribute to effectively positioning the college, allowing it to continue its mission to the great benefit of the Franco-Ontarian community.
I say it often: if Collège Boréal is the number one college in Ontario, it’s because of the contributions of people such as our staff, of course, but also volunteers like the members of our Board who offer their time and expertise so that we can better navigate a world where the only constant is change. I acknowledge the contributions of our Governors, current and incoming, and sincerely thank those who are moving on for their service to the college.
