Humber College to expand

Additional 1,400 spots will train skilled tradespeople

Humber College is getting $7 million from the provincial government to expand one of its campuses in northwest Toronto.

The college will use the money to buy and renovate a building near its north campus, to be named the Humber Applied Skills Training Centre.

The new building will have room for almost 1,400 new students and will focus on high-demand skilled construction trades.

The total cost of the project is $11 million and is scheduled to be completed by the fall of 2009.

Humber College currently has about 12,000 full-time students and another 50,000 taking part-time courses.
