Space crunch at English CÉGEPs tapering off

November 25, 2010

The enrolment crisis that affected English CÉGEPs last spring does not seem to be repeating itself for the winter term. West Island CÉGEPs are reporting more normal figures, both in terms of applicants and the number of students admitted. In the spring, Montreal-area CÉGEPs were turning hundreds of applicants away due to a surge in applications. To ease the space crunch, the Quebec government allocated $1 million to allow the 3 Montreal Island English CÉGEPs to accommodate more students for this fall. The colleges say their numbers are pretty average for January. Montreal Gazette
