Our Financial Partners

Key Partner

Holland College is our key postsecondary institution partner and our partnership was officially launched in April 2017. The overarching agreement currently includes the following specific areas: admissions, programs and equivalent courses, recruitment and student services. We are also exploring collaborating in other areas, including a cultural partnership with the School of Performing Arts (SoPA).

Through this partnership, Collège de l’Île students have access to Prince of Wales Campus facilities such as the gym, the cafeteria, the library, etc. Our students also have access to medical and dental insurance through the Holland College Student Union. For their part, Holland College students can take French language training with Collège de l’Île at a discount.

Additionally, both institutions offer courses in English and French in the same time slots in two programs: Early Childhood Care and Education and Human Services. Students from both institutions then have the option of taking these courses in either English and French.
