Portage plans for expanded healthcare, teaching, trades programming

Portage College President Nancy Broadbent and Vice President of Academics and Research Dr Donna Feledichuk recently shared the college’s plans for the future after a strong enrolment year. Broadbent stated that Portage is undertaking a $3M project to upgrade its programming, equipment, and classrooms across its seven campuses; the college expects to see a $10M surplus at the end of 2024 after these investments. Feledichuk shared that Portage is submitting an application to offer a Bachelor of Education program as “everyone is short teachers,” as well as applications for programs related to occupational therapy, physical therapy, and addictions. The college will also be offering programs such as a computer sciences diploma, kinesiology diploma, and steamfitter and pipefitter training in the future.
