Northern College changes Porcupine Campus’ name to Timmins Campus

June 14, 2013

Northern College’s board of governors last week supported the renaming of the Porcupine Campus to Timmins Campus. Northern says the change aims to facilitate a greater understanding of its campus locations and the lifestyle their communities offer. The college has experienced growth in enrolment by students from outside the traditional college catchment area, which includes over 65 communities throughout northeastern Ontario and along the James Bay Coast. The name change will also allow Northern to capitalize on the City of Timmins’ recent branding efforts – they hope that as the city reaches top-of-mind presence in the country and internationally, the college will gain that recognition as well.
