Brampton mayor says city had up to 80 “diploma mill” institutions, federal measures are helping curb them

A recent article for the Brampton Guardian discusses the views of Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown on the Government of Canada’s recent measures to address “diploma mills.” During a recent news conference in Brampton, Brown said that the city had between 70 and 80 “not-reputable academic institutions,” adding that a lack of a commitment to academic integrity “cast a pall over that academic sector in the country.” Brown—along with Liberal MP Shafqat Ali and Progressive Conservative MPP Charmaine Williams—expressed optimism that the new federal initiatives will have a positive impact and “restore integrity to the sector.”
