Collège Boréal is a francophone College of Applied Arts and Technology based and with its principal campus in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. The college also has satellite campuses in Hearst, Kapuskasing, Timmins, Temiskaming Shores, Toronto and West Nipissing, as well as a network of access centres throughout the province which offer French-language continuing education, employment assistance, immigrant integration and other social programs.

The college began operations in 1995, taking over the francophone programs of Sudbury's Cambrian College. It is a French-language college where students receive hands-on training, tailored to the job market.

In 2002, Collège Boréal added a campus in Toronto, taking over the programs and services of the defunct Collège des Grands-Lacs. The Toronto facility is located at the Carlaw Avenue campus of Centennial College.

The college's current president is Denis Hubert. He succeeded Gisèle Chrétien in 2006 after Chrétien was appointed chair of the TFO television service.

It is one of many colleges in the province, but one of only two francophone colleges. The other, La Cité collégiale, serves Ottawa and Eastern Ontario. The college provides career-oriented education and training, which respond to the needs of students, to the community, and to society.

Buildings and features

The college's Sudbury campus includes an auditorium which is home to theatre productions by Sudbury's Théâtre du Nouvel-Ontario. In September 2006, a trades and applied technologies building was added.

The city-owned Terry Fox Sports Complex, named in honour of legendary Canadian athlete and cancer activist Terry Fox, is located adjacent to the Sudbury campus. In 2008, the college also created a four-kilometre walking trail around the campus, meant to highlight both the natural environment of the area and the cultural and historical heritage of the Franco-Ontarian community.[1]


Collège Boréal offers full-time and continuing studies college programs. Collège Boréal’s focus is on technology and workplace needs. There are programs in administration, media and communications, health, technology, hospitality and tourism, community services, trades, and many more areas.

All of the college's regular education programs are in French, although the college does also offer some short-term trade courses in English.

The college is also a participant in Contact North, a distance education network serving remote Northern Ontario communities.


The residence has 34 units and can currently house 68 students (2 students per unit).


Collège Boréal has developed articulation agreements with universities to assist qualified Collège Boréal graduates to attain specific degrees in shorter periods of time. Graduates are subject to the admission requirements of the university granting the degree. Internationally, the college has several partnerships with institutions in other countries to transfer expertise through technical assistance and training programs.


Collège Boréal is a member of the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association (OCAA) and the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association (CCAA). Its varsity teams are named the Vipères, and compete in six sports on the provincial level within the OCAA. The men’s and women’s teams in basketball, soccer, and volleyball can qualify to compete for a “National Championship” as members of the CCAA.
