Sault College has announced that it intends to build a new health building near the western edge of its Northern Avenue campus. The 30,000 square foot Center for Health Sciences would house all of the college’s health programming, including nursing, health informatics, and personal support worker programs. Construction would start later this year, with the building opening by September 2024. “[W]e’re going to build a suitable space, but what we’re really going to focus on is the technology that goes into the building,” said Sault VP Academic Colin Kirkwood. “We’ve had great interest, both locally and regionally, for access to any of the new simulation equipment that we bring in.” Kirkwood noted that the planned health building would enable it to compete with other institutions for health sciences students.
