In 1968, George Brown College opened its doors to little over 2,000 new students. George Brown originally provided degrees like sign writing or watchmaking in addition to the fields they still teach today, such as construction, early childhood education, dental services, and the culinary arts. Unbelievably, they even offered a maritime engineering curriculum to equip pupils for work at sea. Since then, there are already more than 30,000 students enrolled. People from all around the Greater Toronto Area, the nation, and the world attend George Brown to acquire the knowledge and practical experience necessary to excel in the workplace. Since 2004, George Brown has more than doubled in size, expanded its international collaborations, and deepened its commitment to enhancing the cultural, economic, and social fabric of Toronto under the direction of current President Gervan Fearon.


Students who choose to study in downtown Toronto will do so in the center of the largest and most diverse economy in Canada. George Brown has one of the broadest selections of full-time college programs in Canada, offering more than 160 career-focused certificate, diploma, postgraduate, and degree programs. The majority of their programs include a field education component that offers students the chance to work and learn alongside business partners who may perhaps work for them in the future.
