By: Northern Ontario Business staff

Denis Hubert-Dutrisac, president of Collège Boréal in Sudbury, has announced his retirement. He has served in the role since 2003.

The outgoing president said he is confident he’s leaving the college in good financial standing, after watching the school grow over the last few years.

“With the help of a solid management team, Collège Boréal has almost doubled its budget and its learning area over the last few years, as well as created a substantial financial reserve,” Hubert-Dutrisac said in a news release.

“The most important legacy will be to leave behind an excellent team at all levels, both management and staff alike. I am proud and grateful to all those who have contributed to the college's success, a success that has benefited the students. I am confident that Collège Boréal will remain healthy for our present students and for generations to come.”

Some of the achievements gained during Hubert-Dutrisac’s tenure include an increase in the operational budget from $47 million to $70 million; the expansion of the campus sizes from 375,000 to 664,000 square feet, for a property value of over $149 million; an increase in the number of programs from about 50 to 78; and increasing student numbers from 46,000 between 1995 and 2005 to 100,788 since 2005.

For the last six years, the college has seen a growth of 40 per cent in its registrations and its highest growth rate in continuing education, reaching a high of 4,200 adult students.
