For Your Information on Laurentian University

Laurentian University located in Sudbury was founded in 1960 and is the largest university in northern Ontario with 9,000 full-time, part-time and online students. The university offers programs in English and French and to a significant number of Anishinaabe students. It has been instrumental in the creation of three other universities in northern Ontario: Algoma University in Sault Ste. Marie, Nipissing University in North Bay and l'Université de Hearst.

Laurentian is affiliated with the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, in collaboration with Thunder Bay's Lakehead University, and with the McEwen School of Architecture, which opened in 2013 as the first new school of architecture in Canada in 45 years, and which has played a role in renewing the downtown core of Sudbury. The university is an essential institution to provide post-secondary education to the youth of Sudbury and northeastern Ontario.
