President’s Message

It really now comes down to choice – a choice of program, a choice of college and a choice to commit yourself to your studies in order to obtain your educational and future career goals.

Increasingly more students have made Northern College their “choice of college”. With the strong support of our communities, Northern College has established itself as the choice of those who wish to fulfill their educational dreams. With focus and dedication, Northern College has clearly shown that it is the college of choice for community members from north eastern Ontario who have chosen to remain in the north and continue to enjoy our wonderful quality of life. We are also pleased to say we continue to attract an increasing number of students from throughout Ontario and internationally into several niche and specialized programs offered at our four campuses.

One major focus of our college has been to help you remove educational barriers to your success. If you provide the goal and the commitment, we will make sure that you are able to access the necessary resources and supports to achieve success and properly prepare you with job ready skills for entry into the workforce and rewarding careers.

Our faculty and staff are ready to assist you with financial aid problems, transfer requirements, tutorial needs and a host of other services and success strategies. I encourage you to make use of all of these services. Whether you are a returning student or new to our campus, welcome! You are now part of the Northern College family so remember that we are here to serve you. If you have questions, please give us a call.
