24 April 2020

Collège Boréal is pleased to announce that Ms. Rachel Quesnel has been appointed director of its Nipissing campus.

A graduate of Collège Boréal in 1995 and a native of Northern Ontario, Ms. Quesnel has been serving as interim director of the Nipissing campus since September 2018. She has over fifteen years of experience in community and economic development, employability services and the education sector.

She serves on multiple committees in the Nipissing region, in particular, the Health Professional Recruitment and Retention committee, the Francophone Immigration committee and the Regional Economic Development committee.

A strategic role in the community

As campus director, Ms. Quesnel’s responsibilities include supervising the campus’ management and development, as well as its training and employability services. She will also play an active community role in the ongoing development of Collège Boréal’s relations with local and regional partners.

Ms. Quesnel’s responsibilities also include the Timiskaming, Noëlville and North Bay regions.

Ms. Quesnel assumed her new position on April 1, 2020.

As interim director of the Nipissing campus since 2018, Rachel Quesnel has been a very dynamic presence in the community and is now well known throughout the Nipissing area. We are very happy to know that she will continue to pursue Boréal’s engagement efforts in her permanent position.
I am very fortunate to lead Collège Boréal’s Nipissing campus and to be part of a family of services that extends throughout French-speaking Ontario. This provides opportunities to foster economic and cultural development in Nipissing, Timiskaming, Noëlville and North Bay. Many promising projects are close to my heart.
