Ontario Colleges and Universities


Colleges and Universities in Ontario

From culinary schools to seminaries, and art and design schools to major universities, Ontario offers a variety of educational institutions for students to pursue a post-secondary education. The province, which is Canada's most highly populated, is home to festivals, museums, parks, and freshwater lakes. In fact, the province was named after adjacent Lake Ontario. About one in three Canadians makes their home in Ontario. Universities and schools of all types can be found in major cities like Ottawa and Toronto and career colleges and other unique institutions can be found in smaller places like North Bay or Sudbury. Whatever type of education you seek, you are likely to find opportunities in Ontario that include training in fields as varied as aviation, computer science, engineering, health care and more.
