It offers a wide variety of services in 35 access centres in 25 communities across the Ontario, and has developed and implemented over 60 articulation agreements with other postsecondary institutions.

“Collège Boréal has been collaborating with nearly 15 postsecondary institutions for two decades to enable students to continue their training and achieve their personal objectives,” says Pierre Riopel, president, Collège Boréal.  “Thus far, more than 60 articulation agreements have been established with the goal of providing greater flexibility and transferability between our institutions.”

Under this agreement, graduates of Glendon’s Drama Studies Program (90 credits or 120 credits) can be admitted to Collège Boréal’s second‐year Stage Management Technician program in order to earn an Ontario College Diploma.

Similarly, graduates of Collège Boréal’s Stage Management Technician program will be able to enrol in Glendon’s Dramatic Arts Program (120 credits) and earn a Specialized Honours BA.

A total of 42 credits will be awarded towards this academic program.

“As Glendon prepares to celebrate 50 years of bilingual academic excellence in southern Ontario, we are happy to work with Collège Boréal to expand the postsecondary program offerings in French,” says Donald Ipperciel, principal and dean, Glendon Campus, York University. “The development of such institutional partnerships with other postsecondary institutions in Ontario, Canada and throughout the world allows Glendon to continue supporting student mobility.”
