A University for Timmins? Possibilities and Realities

The Timmins Economic Development Corporation worked with Northern Policy Institute to explore the idea of an English university in Timmins.

The latest research to come from Northern Policy Institute finds the prospects of Timmins securing a stand-alone English university to be limited based on a number of factors, including demographic considerations, the availability of other institutions, and the provincial government’s financial realities.

While there may not be a strong case for a new post-secondary institution in Ontario’s Northeast, Dr. Ken Coates puts forward several alternatives for community leaders in his report, A University for Timmins? Possibilities and Realities. These include developing a satellite campus of an existing university, developing an expanded, coordinated Northern College-University partnership and considering alternative approaches to traditional university programming such as an Indigenous institution for Ontario or a work-focused institution for the province.
