Toronto Excellence College announces plans to turn former high school into trade school


Toronto Excellence College plans to turn a former high school building in Meaford into a trade school. TEC hopes to renovate the building by 2024 and potentially develop an 80-unit residential building on the school’s grounds. The college will offer trades courses in areas such as carpentry, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC. Meaford Mayor Ross Kentner has advised the college to “dovetail their courses with Georgian College’s offerings” in the area in addition to exploring local needs. The private college is currently fundraising for the project and is working on curriculum approvals with the Government of Ontario’s Ministry of Colleges and Universities.
