Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Laurier’s Vision for our Milton Campus

Laurier is committed to extending the university's high-quality academic and student experience along the Toronto-Waterloo Innovation Corridor to the fast-growing community of Milton – giving students from the Halton Region the chance to study close to home. As a multi-campus, multi-community university, Laurier is known for offering unique programs that make each campus its own, while retaining the essence of Laurier’s strong community culture that binds us together.

Evolving over multiple phases, Laurier’s new campus will be part of a comprehensively planned neighbourhood in west Milton, encompassing 400 acres of land alongside the Niagara Escarpment. With plans for postsecondary education along with residential, commercial and recreational uses, this future community is the perfect site for a growing campus. Laurier’s program offerings in Milton will be announced as they are finalized.

Current Programs

Master of Education

Laurier is offering its Master of Education program at the Milton Education Village Innovation Centre. The part-time program features a blended approach with both evening classes and online components to accommodate those working full-time and allowing students to complete the program in as little as two years. Students can expect an exceptional learning experience – small classes are led by award-winning faculty and leaders in their field who facilitate meaningful dialogue, curriculum connections and student engagement.

Laurier Milton Lecture Series

The Laurier Milton Lecture Series provides a wonderful opportunity to engage in a public dialogue with citizens of Milton on a broad array of important topics. Presentations represent the current research and analysis of members of different faculties, departments and programs at Laurier.

Milton Musings Podcast

The Milton Musings podcast celebrates the incredible community and entrepreneurial spirit that can be found in Milton, as well as the surrounding region. Join us in conversation with fascinating people who are helping to enrich Southern Ontario with their exciting projects and initiatives. Each episode showcases a founder, business or community organizer who is doing their part to make Milton and Halton Region an exceptional place to live and work.

Children’s Camps

Laurier, in partnership with the Town of Milton, offers the Laurier Enriched Academic Program (LEAP) summer day camp to gifted/highly able children and youth in grades 1-9 in the Milton area. The camps focus on enrichment and challenge in a fun, interactive atmosphere. LEAP also runs an Animation Station March Break camp in partnership with the Town of Milton for children 9-12 years focused on learning different types of animation techniques.

Faculty of Social Work Professional Development

Laurier’s Faculty of Social Work Professional Development program offers non-credit certificate programs and workshops at the Milton Education Village Innovation Centre. All of the workshops are led by highly qualified instructors who bring their practical experience in the field into the classroom.

  • Counselling Techniques is a certificate designed to help clinicians build a therapeutic toolbox to address the needs of most clients.
  • Counselling Skills for Mental Health is a unique certificate that provides non-clinicians with knowledge and skills to support employees, colleagues, students, clients, and other who are facing mental health and wellness challenges.
  • Dare to Lead™, based on the work of researcher Brené Brown, are workshops that encourage participants to explore what it means to live and work courageously. One workshop is for mental health professionals and one is for business professionals.


The Milton Innovation Centre is accessible by Milton's transit system, GO Transit, 400-series highways and an active transportation network, making it easy to get to your classes and other amenities. There is onsite parking available for those driving.
