August 12, 2014

The Study North Initiative, a collaborative effort between Collège Boréal, Cambrian College, Canadore College, Confederation College, Northern College, and Sault College, will receive a $3-M investment from the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC). The Study North Initiative promotes study and work opportunities in northern Ontario to students in southern Ontario. “Northern Ontario Heritage Fund’s support of this initiative will not only assist in raising the profile of northern colleges and the high-caliber programs they offer but will showcase the vast opportunity our colleges and communities have to offer prospective students,” said Northern President Fred Gibbons. Ontario Minister of Northern Development and Mines Michael Gravelle said, “our government recognizes that northern Ontario’s colleges are essential to preparing northerners for the workforce and to responding to forecasted labour shortages in a number of sectors including the mining industry. I am very pleased that the NOHFC could invest in this important initiative.” Northern News Release | Confederation News Release
