In 1967, Canada’s centennial year, Bill Davis, then the Ontario Minister of Education, suggested that George Brown College would be a suitable name for the new college of applied arts and technology, noting: “the city to which George Brown added such lustre as a reformer, journalist, and statesman should honour him in this way.”
George Brown offers a wide variety of programs in art and design, business, community services, early childhood education, construction and engineering technologies, health sciences, hospitality and culinary arts, preparatory studies, as well as specialized programs and services for recent immigrants and international students.
We’ve taken advantage of our location to give our students an edge in the job market. We partner with companies and organizations that play a role in the academic life of our students by advising course curriculum, providing field education and employment. By helping us develop curriculum, these companies nurture our students to meet industry needs and gain skills that are highly sought after in the current job market.
We have three main campuses and several other locations that place students in the heart of downtown Toronto -- St. James Campus, Casa Loma Campus and Waterfront Campus.
A variety of drop-in sports activities are offered in our gymnasiums during designated open gym times including soccer, basketball, cricket, badminton, floorball, volleyball and others. Note that athletic footwear must be worn in the gymnasium at all times, boots are not permitted.
George Brown College is supported and accredited by government since 1967. The College is regulated by The Ministry of Colleges and Universities
