Humber College

Just behind the north Toronto campus of the Humber College Institute of Technical and Advanced Learning sits its arboretum, a 40-hectare park with sprawling botanical gardens lining the Humber River. The park features the Carolinian bioregion, one of the most diverse ecosystems in Canada and an excellent learning opportunity for students in programs like sustainable energy and building technology. It’s a hidden gem at one of the largest community colleges in Canada.

In April 2019, Humber opened the Barrett Centre for Technology Innovation (CTI), a state-of-the-art technology hub with an interactive demonstration floor, a mobile technology lab and maker spaces. CTI facilitates collaboration between faculty, students, industry partners and community organizations.

Humber offers degree, diploma, certificate, apprenticeship, university transfer and continuing education programs at its three campuses (two in Toronto and one in Orangeville). Students from the college recently won gold medals in the 3D digital game art, baking and mechatronics categories at the Skills Canada National Competition.

The North and Lakeshore campuses have single and suite-style student residences. The North campus is home to the Humber Room, a full-service restaurant where culinary and hospitality students hone their skills. Both the North and Lakeshore campuses are designated as Fair Trade Campuses by the Canadian Fair Trade Network.
