This initiative provides support to school boards so that, together with their postsecondary partners, they can offer diverse and high-quality learning opportunities in a Francophone environment.

Boréal College is a proud postsecondary partner of the School-College-Work Initiative (IJECT). Established in 1997, IJECT is a joint initiative mandated to facilitate the transition of students between high school and college. IJECT finances DRC credits, as well as activities and forums that contribute to the success of high school students. IJECT also helps students transition from high school to college and apprenticeship programs.

Double Recognition Credit (DRC) Courses

Double Recognition Credit (DRC) courses allow high school students to continue their high school studies while taking college courses or apprenticeship programs that count towards both their Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) and a college certificate, diploma, or degree, or an apprenticeship certificate.

The purpose of DRC programs is to help Ontario high school students obtain their OSSD and successfully transition to college or apprenticeship programs.

These programs are funded by the Schools-Colleges-Workplaces Integration Initiative (IJECT) and are approved and supported by the Ontario Ministry of Education (MEO) and the Ministry of Labour, Immigration, Training, and Skills Development (MLITSD).

Types of Programs

  • Postsecondary courses
  • Level 1 programs in a specialized trade apprenticeship


To be eligible, the student must be in Grade 11 or 12 and meet at least one of the following eligibility criteria:

  • Need assistance in clarifying their career choice
  • Unsure of what path to take after high school
  • Accumulated many absences or a credit shortfall
  • Lacks confidence in their ability to succeed
  • Participating in OYAP (Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program)
  • Enrolled in a Specialist High Skills Major program

DRC programs vary by semester, year and region. For a list of DRC programs offered by Collège Boréal, consult the DRC course directory.
