The Impact of Your Donation

Collège Boréal is much more than a French-language postsecondary institution; it is a true pillar of the Ontario Francophonie, providing numerous services to its students and their community.

Since 1995, our institution has been preparing our future leaders, our cultural ambassadors, our future entrepreneurs. Collège Boréal cultivates the richness and full potential of each individual.

With 36 centres located in 27 communities throughout Ontario, Collège Boréal has carved itself a sizeable place in French-language postsecondary education. Designated under the French Language Services Act, Collège Boréal is a true leader at the heart of our communities, as an important economic, social and cultural driving force in each of the areas it serves. That is why our motto, “Nourrir le savoir et faire vibrer la culture” (“Nurturing knowledge and vitalizing culture”), travels well beyond the classroom.

Not only does Collège Boréal have an outstanding reputation, it also boasts exceptional results, having the highest graduation and graduate satisfaction rates of all 24 Ontario colleges. The confidence shown by our employer partners makes us proud, with 96% who would recommend hiring our graduates.

Collège Boréal assures you that our vision, mission, passion and traditions lie at the heart of our actions. This is the key to our success!

Here are a few of the exceptional donations that help us pursue our goal of excellence:

Let’s not forget to recognize the ever-growing commitment of our graduates, of the members of the college community, and of our friends. Their financial contribution is very important regardless of the amount of their donation since their gesture is added to that of all the other donors.
