Marianopolis to buy building, land it occupies


The Congregation of Notre-Dame (CND)–which owns and has overseen the Villa Maria estate on which Marianopolis College is located–will be selling the property as it has become “too cumbersome” for the nuns to maintain, reports CBC. The non-profit organization that manages Marianopolis College intends to purchase the building and land that the cégep has occupied since 2007 to ensure its continued operation. The purchase will happen over the next few months. CND will be looking for a buyer for the rest of the property with hopes that the area’s educational character will be preserved.
