A University for Timmins? Possibilities and Realities
November 15, 2017 | Dr. Ken Coates
The latest research to come from Northern Policy Institute finds the prospects of Timmins securing a stand-alone English university to be limited based on a number of factors, including demographic considerations, the availability of other institutions, and the provincial government’s financial realities. While there may not be a strong case for a new post-secondary institution in Ontario’s Northeast, Dr. Ken Coates puts forward several alternatives for community leaders in his report. These include developing a satellite campus of an existing university, developing an expanded, coordinated Northern College-University partnership and considering alternative approaches to traditional university programming such as an Indigenous institution for Ontario or a work-focused institution for the province.
