    Profile

    Founded in 1821 with a bequest by Montreal merchant James McGill, the university has earned an international reputation for scholarly achievement and scientific discovery. Cutting-edge facilities and innovative research programs attract internationally respected teachers and researchers and first-class students.

    McGill’s 21 faculties and professional schools offer degrees in more than 300 disciplines. McGill is one of Canada’s most research-intensive universities when measured in terms of competitive research funding dollars per professor. Researchers at McGill are affiliated with about 75 major research centres and networks, and are engaged in an extensive array of research partnerships with other universities, government and industry in Quebec and Canada, throughout North America and in dozens of other countries. The university has four affiliated teaching hospitals, including the McGill University Health Centre’s multi-site network, several remote research stations, a network of 16 libraries, and a number of major museum collections and ecological treasures, including the 250 hectare Morgan Arboretum, the largest in Canada.

    McGill’s main campus, a mosaic of heritage and modern buildings in an oasis of green space, is set in Montreal’s vibrant downtown core with Mount Royal as a backdrop. A short drive west of downtown, the Macdonald Campus occupies 650 hectares of woods and fields on the shores of Lac St-Louis, providing unique opportunities for fieldwork and research activities.

    With almost 20 per cent of its students coming from 140 countries around the globe, McGill has the most internationally diverse student body of any medical/doctoral university in Canada. It offers its students unparalleled opportunities to enrich their educational experience through hands-on research programs, exchange programs, internships, field study and study abroad programs. The university recognizes and honours academic distinction and leadership qualities through an extensive program of entrance awards and scholarships. It provides more than $10 million a year in undergraduate scholarships and student aid.

    President: Mr. Gilles G. Patry

    Profile

    It makes sense that Canada’s premier bilingual university would be found in the heart of Canada’s capital. Since 1848, the University of Ottawa has offered students a place where French and English Canada come together, share ideas, information and viewpoints.

    The University of Ottawa has distinguished itself as “Canada’s university”, offering courses in Canada’s two official languages, and promoting and supporting cultural diversity in the heart of the nation’s capital. On campus, in what amounts to a small city within a city, more than 33,000 students from a variety of heritages study, live and work side by side in surroundings that foster English and French cultures.

    The university’s nine faculties – arts, education, engineering, health sciences, law, management, medicine, science, and social sciences – offer nearly 140 undergraduate majors and concentrations. Under the aegis of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, the university also offers graduate programs leading to master’s and doctoral degrees in most of these disciplines. In addition, the University of Ottawa offers one of Canada’s most successful extensive co-op programs with a 97 percent student placement rate.

    Excellent programs are complemented by a proximity to Canada’s parliament, government departments and
    agencies, non-government and non-profit organizations, major libraries, research institutions and health centres as well as the university’s involvement in global technological initiatives. National galleries, museums, heritage sites, theatres and year-round festivals all bring together a rich cultural mosaic.

    Culturally, the departments of music, theatre, and visual arts provide a full program of concerts, plays, and exhibitions. Festivals, fairs, films, and public lectures of every description – many with an international flavour – as well as a broad spectrum of interuniversity, intramural, and recreational sports, make the campus a lively and vibrant place.

    History
    Year of foundation: 1848
    Former names of the institution: College of Bytown (1848); College of Ottawa (1861); University of Ottawa (1866).

    Undergraduate: Admission scholarships are automatically awarded to Canadian citizens and permanent residents admitted as full-time students, for the first time, in an undergraduate program in one of the threshold faculties: arts, engineering, health sciences, management, science, social sciences and law (civil law section). These scholarships range in value from $1,000 for an 80 percent average to $4,000 for an average of 95 percent and higher and are renewable, upon certain conditions, for up to three years.

All scholarships are at least equivalent to tuition fees. Many students combine a stipend from their thesis supervisor’s research funds with teaching or research assistantships. Travel stipends are available to students presenting their research results at an external conference. The university also offers support to graduate students in the form of governmental financial aid, financial aid bursaries and Ontario Student Opportunity Trust Fund bursaries.

    University research

    Generating close to $240 million annually in external research funding, uOttawa is one of Canada’s leading research-intensive universities. With its bilingual structure, its co-op programs and its location in the nation’s capital, the University of Ottawa is uniquely positioned to draw support from leaders in government, industry and academia, and attract the best students and researchers.

    The university, equipped with an impressive infrastructure, provides a dynamic and nurturing environment, one that fosters creativity and innovation. Population health, security and the environment are included in the university’s Strategic Areas of Development in Research (SADR). University research is significantly enhanced by developing strategic regional research networks around the world, creating solid partnerships with researchers and highly qualified scholars from all corners of the globe.

    In today’s rapidly evolving global community, students depend on an educational system capable of providing robust academic preparations, and awareness of the surroundings and the knowledge and cultural values of other societies. The University of Ottawa is an ideal place to acquire cross-disciplinary knowledge and develop cross-cultural experiences.

    International education

    One of the University of Ottawa’s defining qualities is the cosmopolitan character of the community and its strong commitment to international relations. The International Office is the central service dedicated to serving the various aspects of international life.

    The IO facilitates the admissions process and supports the harmonious integration of international students on campus. More than 1,600 international students from 130 countries are registered in both undergraduate
    and graduate programs of study. In addition, the university offers an Off-Campus Work Program for inter-
    national students.

    The International Office also manages close to 140 mobility agreements in 40 different countries and continues to expand the list to other destinations. University of Ottawa exchange students automatically receive a mobility scholarship of $2,000 for a two-semester participation period in an international exchange.

    Incoming and outgoing students can also participate in the Mentorship Program aimed at facilitating the integration of exchange students into Canadian society and university life in Ottawa.

    The University of Ottawa, through its international office, provides both outgoing students and incoming international exchange students with positive learning experiences, preparing them to function as global citizens.

    Telephone: (519) 661-2111

    President and Vice-chancellor: Dr. Paul Davenport

    Profile

    London’s University of Western Ontario is one of Canada’s oldest, largest and most beautiful universities. The university is located on 155 hectares of land along the banks of the Thames River in London, Ontario – a thriving city of 432,451 people, 200 km west of Toronto. Founded in 1878 by Bishop Isaac Hellmuth and the Anglican Diocese of Huron as “The Western University of London Ontario”.

    The first students graduated in arts and medicine in 1883. Today, through its 12 faculties and schools, and
    three affiliated colleges, the university offers more than 60 different degree and diploma programs.Together with more than 3,000 faculty and staff, our students enjoy a diversified academic and social life. In its size, cohesiveness and diversity, Western boasts many of the best features of both a small town and a cosmopolitan city.

    Like much smaller universities, Western has an excellent faculty-student ratio of 1:19. There are larger lecture classes, but the average first-year class size is 80, few are more than 150, and senior classes are substantially smaller. In addition, at Western, lectures are complemented by labs and tutorials of about 30 students. It’s Western’s way of assuring that dialogue and an interactive learning environment are as much a part of the academic experience as the lectures.

    Research is an integral part of the university’s mission and external support for research projects totals nearly $210 million per year.

    Profile

    The Ontario College of Art & Design is Canada’s largest university of art and design, specializing in creativity and innovation, and is the third largest of the approximately 40 professional art and design institutions in North America. Throughout its distinguished history, OCAD has been shaped by many of Canada’s leading figures in art and design.

    Imagination and invention are inspired by our situation in the heart of Toronto, which has the largest concentration of art galleries in Canada and is the centre of Ontario’s design industry, the third largest in North America. We are active participants in the city’s cultural activities and collaborate with selected industrial partners. OCAD supports a vibrant community life, offering special events and lectures, a variety of exhibition venues, visiting artists-in-residence programs, and informal gatherings that help students gain experience in the contemporary art and design worlds.

    OCAD students enjoy a one-of-a-kind learning environment that is dedicated exclusively to visual culture, and best understood as a creative “hothouse.” The faculty includes many leading art and design practitioners and scholars. A liberal studies education is integrated with a comprehensive studio program resulting in an educational experience through which students gain an in-depth knowledge of the history and theory of visual culture, as well as the analytical skills to execute powerful ideas within the studio context. OCAD’s graduates are recognized for their broad skills in creativity and innovation.

    OCAD offers two undergraduate degrees, a BFA and a BDes. Faculty of Art students may specialize in criticism and curatorial practice, drawing and painting, integrated media, photography, printmaking or sculpture and installation. Faculty of Design students may specialize in advertising, environmental design, graphic design, illustration, industrial design or material art and design (jewellery, fibre and ceramics).

    OCAD continues to expand its research capacity through partnerships with industries, cultural organizations and other educational institutions. We will seek to complement these research initiatives with the introduction of graduate programs in the near future. Many of OCAD’s faculty and students currently engage in international exchange programs, and building relationships with institutions around the world is a focus of OCAD’s new strategic plan.

    Profile

    Located at the centre of Canada’s beautiful Niagara Peninsula in St. Catharines, Ontario, Brock University was opened in 1964 and named for Maj.-General Sir Isaac Brock, who lost his life at Queenston Heights in the War of 1812. His last words were said to be, “Surgite! Push on!” which has become the university’s motto.

    The university offers strong undergraduate, graduate and interdisciplinary degree programs that include co-op and other experiential learning opportunities to a student population of more than 17,000. The university’s six faculties – Applied Health Sciences, Business, Education, Humanities, Mathematics and Science, and Social Sciences – provide a supportive student-focused and learning-centred environment. Students can expect the close, personal attention of a dedicated faculty and the opportunity to explore their academic interest through participation in seminars and labs.

    Brock University graduates continue to enjoy one of the highest employment rates of all Ontario universities
    at 96.5 percent. Brock celebrates the success of its 50,000 graduates who apply their degrees to careers throughout Canada and around the world. The university, long recognized for its high quality undergraduate education, is expanding post-graduate education in an increasingly wide range of areas. At the same time, Brock is intensifying research and scholarship and expanding international academic linkages to integrate a global perspective into teaching, learning and research.

    To meet an increasing demand for a Brock education, more than $87 million in construction has been committed or commissioned to expand the campus. Over the last few years, the university completed construction of academic buildings, the Walker Complex – which is Niagara’s largest recreational facility, and student residences. A $22.6 million facility to house a new bookstore, provide additional academic space and house the Lifespan Development Research Centre, a facility unique in Canada, will be completed in 2007.

    Brock serves the Niagara region as a cultural, academic and recreational centre and offers the community excellent facilities for people of all ages. The university’s annual economic impact on the Niagara region is $265 million.

    The Brock campus is a safe and friendly environment. The park-like setting of the university, with its wide-open spaces, offers a number of outdoor activities at any time of year. Brock University is the only Canadian university with the distinction of being part of a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. The university also operates a campus in Hamilton, Ontario, that is used primarily for teacher education.

    University research

    The people who work and study at Brock are critical to the university’s progress in research. To that end, Brock invests in people – faculty members, undergraduate and graduate students, and research support personnel in laboratories, studios, and the Research Office. In recent years, sponsored research funding has grown substantially, allowing Brock to attract outstanding scientists and scholars, including eight Canada Research Chairs. External funds have facilitated the expansion of the research infrastructure, including the construction of the world-renowned Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute and the Lifespan Development Research Centre. External grants attracted by researchers support undergraduate and graduate students as research assistants who are mentored by our faculty members. This growth in funding demonstrates confidence in our faculty’s ability to lead the innovation process in the Niagara region. Brock truly is at the core of the innovation agenda for Niagara – innovation in the arts, social sciences, business, education, health, and applied science.

    International education

    Brock values internationalization; we welcome the world’s ideas and cultures, thereby creating a dynamic interaction with our own. A significant part of this process is performed by international students coming to Brock and by Canadian students going abroad on student exchange programs.

    Brock administers exchange programs with universities on six continents, and we are involved in 35 formal, active exchange agreements. While our exchanges are one- or two-term placements, Brock also offers short-term international education experiences. Students can travel abroad to obtain individual courses within our numerous service learning programs.

    Brock is also home to more than 1,000 international students from over 80 countries. International students
    are encouraged to participate and become involved in both campus and community life. An International Student Work/Study Program exists, allowing for many international students to gain valuable on-campus work experience.

    Profile

    Huron University College is a residential, liberal arts, social science and theology institution, academically affiliated with the University of Western Ontario. In addition to Huron’s own programs, services and campus, Huron students have full access to the academic, community, cultural and athletic facilities of Western and graduate with University of Western Ontario degrees.

    Classes at Huron are small: at the first and second-year levels, 80 percent have fewer than 50 students; at the third and fourth-year levels, there are fewer than 25 students in all classes. The college has an excellent library, student services access centre, computer room and language lab, and career and employment counselling, backed by the further resources of the University of Western Ontario.

    Huron’s mission is to promote educational excellence, to encourage scholarly achievement, to foster international understanding and cooperation, and to provide its students with a broad and useful education that will develop their intellectual skills, enhance their desire for knowledge, and prepare them for positions of leadership and responsibility. It is a mission which is perceived and practiced in a global context. These goals are fulfilled through the range of academic programs and opportunities students have for extracurricular involvement at Huron and Western, through community-based learning, local and inter-
    national volunteer service/missions, internships and in various study abroad programs.

    History
    Year of foundation: 1863

The dining hall not only supports the meal plans for resident students, but is also open to the student body and public for their use as well. During the summer months, the Huron University College dining hall provides catering services, through Huron’s Conference Services Department, to external groups utilizing the College’s meeting facilities and residences.

In addition to several services provided on-site, Huron students also have access to the Student Development Centre, located on Western’s main campus, which provides support services, counselling and workshops in many areas.

    University research

    Research conducted at Huron reflects innovative thinking about issues critical to Canadians including, for example, globalization and its effects on indigenous communities; modeling participatory democratic practice; and the development of civil society institutions for poverty-reduction in Africa. Huron researchers examine the role of cities as engines of economic growth. Research in French and post-colonial English literatures explores the meaning of the “in-between” identity, an issue of importance in multi-ethnic Canada. Research into the development of hearing in infants contributes to our understanding of childhood development. The unified Faculty structure (Arts and Social Science) encourages faculty to engage in interdisciplinary research.

    Students with interests in research are attracted to Huron because a fourth year research thesis is either a requirement or an option in all our Honours BA programs. Huron’s community-based learning initiative links the classroom with communities outside the university and provides students with an exposure to social needs and new sources of knowledge.

    Students in third and fourth years can obtain direct research experience as paid or volunteer research assistants to faculty members.

    Our faculty members access support for research and its dissemination through our individual allowance program and through a competition for a pool of research funds.

    International education

    Huron offers a variety of opportunities to its students for learning beyond Canada’s borders. At present, Huron has 18 formal exchange agreements with universities around the world in Belgium, Belize, China, France, Japan, Korea, Malta, Mexico, Norway, Singapore, Sweden and the United Kingdom. In addition, Huron students are also eligible to participate in any of Western’s exchange programs.

    Huron in Honduras: This experiential learning opportunity is designed for student seeking a deeper understanding of the social, cultural, economic and political links among societies in a rapidly globalizing world.

Students stay with families in the town of Copan Ruinas, study Spanish, take part in community development projects, work with young chidren in arts projects and teach English.

    Study Abroad: First-year study abroad opportunities are available with the International Study Centre at
    Herstmonceux Castle in Sussex, England. Other study abroad opportunities can be arranged by students to
    attend universities world-wide from a week to a year.
