Exceptional celebrations for an exceptional year!

3 June 2021
Graduates from all over Ontario had the opportunity to come together virtually on May 26 to celebrate together - but from a distance - the end of this important chapter in their lives. As Collège Boréal proudly celebrates its 25th anniversary, the atmosphere was festive and serene, after what was certainly an exceptional year.

Numerous prizes and distinctions were also awarded during these ceremonies. Congratulations to the following recipients and to all of our graduates.

Governor General’s Academic Medal

This year Talyssa Bourque, a technical social work graduate in Sudbury, won the Governor General’s Academic Medal, a distinction she has earned thanks to her exemplary academic background.

Chairman’s Award of the Board of Directors

This recognition was awarded to the Canadian Club of Toronto, which is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year. The award aims to recognize the long-standing partnership between the two entities and the recent implementation of Integration 360, a series of workshops offered in french, free of charge online to immigrants.

Collège Boréal President’s Award

 The College’s president, Daniel Giroux had the honor of presenting the Collège Boréal President’s Award to Eacom Timber Corporation who’s important contribution over the years had helped develop students’ skills even further by offering many of them work placements. Eacom Timber Corporation is also an innovative research partner in forestry and agriculture, among others.

Honorary degree

It was Jean-Marc Spencer, a Sudbury community builder known for his involvement in the Mouvement des caisses Desjardins, who was awarded the honorary diploma this year. A proud defender of the rights of Francophones, he has distinguished himself through his tireless community involvement and his desire to help the Franco-Ontarian community flourish.

The resilience you acquired this year will serve you well in the job market. You are part of a story that you will remember for the rest of your career. You have worked hard to make it to this great day. You are right to be proud. Your parents and friends are also right to be proud. You should know that the entire Collège Boréal team is certainly happy to see a group of extraordinary graduates well equipped for the job market such as yourselves.
I feel privileged and honored to receive the highest honor from Collège Boréal. Community involvement is very important not only to support organizations in your community but also to enrich your learning and obtain various experiences.
