Just behind the north campus of Humber College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning sits its arboretum, a 100-acre park with sprawling botanical gardens surrounding the Humber River. It features the Carolinian bioregion, one of the most diverse ecosystems in Canada, a hands-on learning space for Humber students in programs like sustainable energy and building technology. This is just one hidden gem in one of the largest community colleges in Canada.
Humber, a member of Polytechnics Canada, offers degree, diploma, certificate, apprenticeship, university transfer, and continuing education programs at its three campuses, two in Toronto and one in Orangeville. A polytechnic is a skills-intensive, technology-based institute that emphasizes applied research and innovation, typically with close ties to industry, and offers four-year bachelor’s degrees.
Budding entrepreneurs have access to HumberLaunch, a hub that provides mentorship, resources, money, skills development and networking opportunities to support students’ business ideas. Alumni have launched several successful businesses; a compostable green bin incubated there won start-up funding on the popular television program Dragons’ Den.
The north and lakeshore campuses have single or suite-style student residences. The north campus is home to the Humber Room, a full-service, upscale restaurant where culinary and hospitality students practise their skills while serving the general public, as well as the Humber Spa, where esthetician and spa-management students offer treatments to the public.
