Sheridan College at CCTT
Sheridan College has partnered with the Canadian College of Technology and Trades (CCTT) — a fully accredited, designated learning institution (DLI) — to deliver two of its academic programs in Fort Erie, Ontario.
Our partnership will begin with an initial cohort of several hundred students from Southeast and East Asian countries, including Vietnam, Philippines, South Korea and China starting in the fall. The students will be enrolled at CCTT’s existing facility in Fort Erie, studying in one of two diploma programs where Sheridan has deep history and expertise. All services and course content at this location will be created and delivered by CCTT employees. Sheridan will set and maintain control over academic quality standards to ensure its rigorous standards are met.
The diploma programs offered have been identified as imperative for Ontario’s labour market and will bring in-demand training in the skilled trades to Fort Erie, which is in the heart of North America's busiest economic trade corridors, and other areas outside of the GTA where there is significant need. International graduates of these programs at CCTT will be eligible for the post-graduate work permit program in Canada and subsequently, a pathway to permanent residency and citizenship in Canada.
Both Sheridan and CCTT are committed to upholding the principles, actions and standards outlined in The Brampton Charter for Improving the International Student Experience — which Sheridan co-created — and the Colleges Ontario Code of Ethics for international student recruitment, to which Sheridan is a signatory.
In keeping with Sheridan’s unwavering commitment to enabling students to thrive, learners in these programs will have mandatory health insurance, a full suite of student supports to fuel their success in learning and life, and access to ample on-site housing.
