In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Ontario’s College System, the province declared April 3 to 9, 2017 as Colleges Week and is making a new investment in each of Ontario’s 24 publicly assisted colleges to enhance the student experience.

Ontario is providing $2,801,400 to help Sheridan College deliver high-quality education that will give students the skills they need for the jobs of tomorrow.

This investment will provide college students at Sheridan with state-of-the-art materials including specialized software for teaching, new lab and shop equipment and technology to modernize existing classrooms and labs, that will ensure they have the right skills for a knowledge and technology-driven economy.


“Ontario colleges are providing students with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed. I’m proud our government is supporting our youth as they pursue a quality post-secondary education. Colleges across the province will benefit from this additional funding, but more importantly, our kids benefit,” stated Indira Naidoo-Harris, MPP for Halton.

About 220,000 students are enrolled full time at Ontario’s 24 publicly assisted colleges. In 2015-16, about 84 per cent of Ontario college graduates found work within six months of graduating.
