University of Sudbury

The University of Sudbury is a bilingual university based in the tradition of its founding Jesuit Fathers, and committed to promoting the traditions and culture of the Indigenous people. Founded as Collège du Sacré-Coeur in 1913, it was the first, and for many years the only, institution of higher learning in Northern Ontario. In 1957, it changed its name to “University of Sudbury” and began to exercise its full teaching and degree-granting powers. It entered into the Laurentian Federation as a founding member in 1960.

Located in Sudbury, approximately four hours north of Toronto, the university offers programs and courses in philosophy, Indigenous studies, religious studies, folklore, and journalism – all of which are accredited towards a Laurentian University degree. The university also offers many courses via distance education.
