Brampton continues to push the provincial government funding for university town itself after receiving approval no longer on the campus of Ryerson by the Ford government last October.
There was an announcement from the city of Brampton with the launch of its new campaign called “BramptonU,” which intends to acquire the partnership and receive full funding to the university campus for the university’s own city.
“We propose, new and innovative solutions; ‘BramptonU’ efforts to cities led in order to obtain the approval of the province to launch our universities themselves fully accredited here in Brampton, “said Mayor Patrick Brown in a campaign video on the site BramptonU, which also featured the Regional Council of Rowena Santos and Board Member city, Harkirat Singh.
According to their new website, the city is looking for the right partnerships with academic institutions and community support.
The site also states that they are “exploring partnerships and approaches to build and maintain a brick and mortar building for the University of Brampton and the possibility of student housing.”
Regional Board Member, Rowena Santos said, “We have thousands of youth explore career options, looking for new training and learning … but we do not have a full university of our own in Brampton.”
City Council members, Harkirat Singh added, “Bringing a full university for Brampton is an important priority for the City Council and a step toward delivering on our 2040 Vision.”
Last year, after Brown was elected mayor, the provincial government made the announcement that they will no longer fund the city center Ryserson Universities Sheridan College, which previously promised by the Liberal government.
While Brampton currently has Sheridan College Davis Campus, along with a smaller partnership with Ryerson University Chang School of Continuing Education and Algoma University, 2040 vision they contain a full university of their own.
