• The CelebrationAn unwavering commitment to student success, high quality programs led by exceptional professors with real-world experience, graduates who have gone on to outstanding career success and a treasured relationship with the community – Northern has been guided by these ideals since 1967.

    In May 1965, former Ontario Education Minister Bill Davis introduced legislation to establish colleges of applied arts and technology across the province. The legislation reflected a profound new approach to education that has energized, stimulated and transformed the local, provincial and national economies ever since.
