Before the 1960s, the only institutes that co-existed with universities at the post-secondary level in Ontario were technology and vocational centers. In 1967, this changed when St. Lawrence College along with many others were established to fill in that gap. “These schools were designed to provide career-oriented diploma and certificate courses, as well as continuing education programs in the communities in which they are located.” Kingston was named the main campus due to its growing population, with Cornwall assisting the campus in housing the counties around. Brockville remains the smallest campus. St. Lawrence College is part of Ontario’s history and continues to serve the province more than 50 years later. Despite the small-town living, St. Lawrence provides big city education for students seeking experiential skills for better quality of life.
