TIMMINS, ON: In celebration of its 50th anniversary, Northern College is preparing to host Community Connect Sessions to hear from community members and employers.

“We are a Community College, and we want to make sure that what we do aligns with the needs of the communities we serve,” said Fred Gibbons, President and CEO of Northern College. “We are asking area businesses and individuals to get involved in the process. We recognize that there are many different perspectives and ideas about what a college can do to be a positive force in the community, and we want to get as much input as we can.”
