These official numbers provided by the Ontario College Application Service (OCAS) represent the highest increase Collège Boréal has experienced since its creation in 1995.
This 15-per-cent increase in the number of registrations significantly exceeds the average 2.9 per cent increase among the 24 colleges of applied arts and technology in the province.
Recording the highest growth among all colleges in Northern Ontario, Collège Boréal also stands out in the Central-South-West region where enrolment has quadrupled after only 10 years of existence.
“Year after year, Collège Boréal has distinguished itself though its performance and innovative spirit,” Denis Hubert-Dustrisac, the college's president, said in a press release.
“We are honored by the trust we receive from more and more students, counsellors and parents, which stems from this tangible evidence of a high-quality postsecondary education.”
