Coalition winds down activities after USudbury, UOttawa partnership


The Coalition nord-ontarienne pour une université de langue française—also known as the Northern Ontario Coalition for a French-Language University in English—has announced that it will be ending activities. The Coalition was formed after Laurentian University cut several French-language programs in April 2021. It called for a French-language university in Northern Ontario and supported the Université de Sudbury in attempting to attain status as such. The Coalition is now ending its activities after USudbury partnered with the University of Ottawa to begin offering programs that will meet labour needs of the region. “We extend our best wishes for success to all the entities and individuals involved in French-language post-secondary education in our region,” said Coalition spokesperson Denis Constantineau. | Sudbury Star
