Sheridan Receives $60 Million to Expand Mississauga Campus

June 28, 2011

Sheridan is receiving $60 million in funding from the Ontario Government to construct the second phase of the Mississauga Campus. Construction is expected to begin in late 2012, following a community consultation to develop detailed plans for the new facility. The first phase of the campus was supported by the federal and provincial governments with $31.23 million through the Knowledge Infrastructure Program. Phase II will accommodate an additional full-time 3,500 students, bringing the total enrolment at the Hazel McCallion Campus to 5,260 when the new building opens in 2014.

The first phase of the HMC opens this September, and will accommodate 1,760 students, primarily enrolled in business diploma and post-graduate programs. Enrolment in most programs had already reached capacity by March of this year. “The enthusiastic response to the first phase of our Mississauga campus has confirmed the growing demand for higher education in the region,” said Dr. Jeff Zabudsky, President and CEO. “The new building is vital to helping us meet this demand, by providing the space and facilities that will enable more Mississauga residents to pursue diplomas and degrees closer to home.”
