Ryerson/Sheridan partnership proposed for Brampton.
On October 26, 2016 the Ontario Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development identified Brampton as a location to build a new post-secondary facility.
March 6, 2017 was the deadline for institutions to submit an "Expression of Interest," a first step in the Provincial process. The City reached out to major Ontario universities and had in-depth discussions with several.
On March 14, the Province revealed it is now reviewing a proposal from Ryerson University, in partnership with Sheridan College.
More details to come this spring: visit the Ontario Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development for more information.
The City is excited to continue its discussions with Ryerson University, the Province and all stakeholders to develop a unique centre that combines education with innovation and collaboration – something beyond a traditional university campus.
