Concrete support for the Franco-Ontarian community: the Governments of Canada and Ontario announce a major investment in Collège Boréal

The Government of Canada is committed to making sure all Canadians can learn and grow in the official language of their choice. We know that investing in post-secondary institutions is the path to take in order to equip young people for their future and promote the vitality of official-language minority communities.

Today, Marc Serré, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Official Languages, accompanied by Viviane Lapointe, Member of Parliament for Sudbury, announced more than $8 million in funding for Collège Boréal. He made this announcement on behalf of the Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Minister of Official Languages and Minister responsible for the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency.

Thanks to this funding, Collège Boréal will start work to develop new bachelor’s degrees that will address specific training and labour needs in Northern Ontario.

In addition to responding to a great need for programs offered in Northern Ontario, the development of Collège Boréal’s new French-language post-secondary programs will make it possible to increase access to high-quality education for the province’s student population, including rural regions.

The project is funded under the Canada–Ontario Agreement on Minority-Language Education and Second-Language Instruction (2020–2021 to 2022–2023). The Government of Canada will provide $5.1 million over three years to improve programs at Collège Boréal, and the Government of Ontario will provide just over $2.9 million over three years.
