New University-led Campus for Postsecondary Education in Brampton

Access to postsecondary education, closer to home, will help develop our highly skilled workforce

Ontario is expanding access to postsecondary education in Brampton and supporting students with new learning options in their community.

The government of Ontario announced the province’s plans to create a new university-led postsecondary site in Brampton focused on a combination of science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM).

The government will launch a call for proposals and Ontario universities will be encouraged to work in partnership with local communities, business, and other institutions to develop innovative proposals for the new site. More access to postsecondary education, closer to home, will help develop Ontario’s highly skilled workforce by increasing experiential learning opportunities, helping students acquire the talent and skills for the knowledge economy, and encouraging partnerships in high-demand fields.

This plan is the second phase of Ontario’s major expansion in postsecondary infrastructure. In May 2015, Ontario announced the creation of the York University – Markham Centre campus in partnership with Seneca College.
