Wilfrid Laurier University has been working with the Town of Milton since 2008 to bring postsecondary education to this vibrant and fast-growing community, which is located mid-way along the Toronto-Waterloo Innovation Corridor. The desire to establish a postsecondary campus in Milton, in partnership with Conestoga College, has the support of numerous community partners.
The Milton Education Village (MEV) will be developed on a 400-acre site adjacent to the beautiful Niagara Escarpment. At the heart of the MEV is a 150-acre parcel of land dedicated to higher education, research and innovation. This parcel, consisting of 50 developable acres and 100 acres of protected greenbelt lands, is valued at $50 million and was donated to Laurier by the Town of Milton to help facilitate the creation of a postsecondary site in the community.
Much planning has already been done to lay the groundwork for a successful Laurier-Conestoga site in Milton. Laurier is committed to working with the Town of Milton, Conestoga College, our community partners and the Ontario government to find the best path forward.
