Northern colleges make inroads in Southern ON

May 15, 2019

The Study North Initiative—an ongoing collaboration between College Boreal and Canadore, Confederation, Sault, Cambrian, and Northern College—has been credited for improved enrolments in northern Ontario. According to the North Bay Nugget, the program has attracted 542 students from central and southern Ontario over the last four years. "Study North can’t be seen as the sole reason for the increase . . . but many of those students had never heard of these colleges before," said Jeannette Miron, Registrar and Manager of Institutional Research at Canadore. Miron added that although the initiative was implemented cooperatively, the six colleges are competing with each other. The Nuggetalso states that the students generate a combined $8.5M for the local community each year. North Bay Nugget (ON)
