A moment with Marketa
Hello, readers! As I continue to visit Ontario’s remarkable colleges, I want to share some highlights from my recent trips to St. Lawrence College in Kingston, Cambrian College in Sudbury and Canadore College in North Bay. Graduates from these colleges and many other public colleges across Ontario are simply instrumental for the health-care, mining and aviation sectors.
Welcome to my first blog post as the new president and CEO of Colleges Ontario. I’m thrilled to be in this new role as I truly believe in the transformational power of public post-secondary education. Public colleges play such a key role in the vitality of our province and helping people find the right path to rewarding and fulfilling careers.
