Today, Northern College broke ground for the new Integrated Emergency Services Complex at the Timmins Campus, an investment of $11.7 million.

Located at the field on the east side of the campus next to the Residence parking lot, the new Integrated Emergency Services Complex will provide the college’s emergency services programs with modern classrooms, as well as study and learning space. The complex will feature state-of-the-art facilities, including mock courtroom and jail cell, interview and fingerprint rooms, fire tower, and fire, ambulance and police bays.

The project is estimated to be completed by fall 2018.
