St. Lawrence College 50th
St. Lawrence College is celebrating its 50th anniversary, along with the entire college sector. Our close-knit community includes 8,000 full-time students, more than 1000 staff, and, more than 85,000 people call themselves a proud SLC alum.

With our three friendly campuses in Brockville, Cornwall, and Kingston, SLC is proud to be an integral part of the economic life and social fabric of Eastern Ontario for the last 50 years.
We offer more than 100 full-time programs, and more than 900 online courses, including diplomas, degrees, certificates, post-graduate certificates, and more! Creating new online programs will ensure that students, both on and off campus, receive the digital fluency necessary in their future careers. That way, we can ensure our students are prepared for the careers of their dreams.

We welcome students from across Canada and around the world. Moving forward we will continue to create new strategies to attract even higher numbers of international students to our campuses. International students enrich our classrooms and boost economic vibrancy in our communities.

The coming year will be very exciting for SLC, as we begin the building and renovation of our Kingston campus with the Hello Future Capital Project, which will see the building of the new Student Life and Innovation Centre on the Kingston campus, build a permanent home for the Centre for Education, Behavioural Research and Intervention in the Community (CEBRIC), and modernize our Health Science Simulation Labs across all campuses. This construction project will create more than 540 jobs, while renewing, modernizing and greening the Kingston campus.
