As a multi-campus, multi-community university, Wilfrid Laurier University has been working with the Town of Milton since 2008 to bring Laurier’s high-quality academic and student experience to this vibrant and fast-growing community, located midway along the Toronto-Waterloo Innovation Corridor. The university, in partnership with Conestoga College and with the support of numerous community partners, is committed to establishing a Milton postsecondary campus to allow students in the Halton Region to study closer to home. Laurier currently offers a Master of Education program in Milton as well as an ongoing Laurier Milton lecture series.
Much planning has already been done with the Town of Milton, Conestoga College and other partners to lay the groundwork for a successful Laurier-Conestoga site in Milton, and discussion is underway to define the first phase of the project.
