December 6, 2022 – CBC PEI: Prince Edward Island’s francophone community college is looking for a site in Summerside on which to build a new campus.
Since it opened in 1993, Collège de l’Île has been based in Wellington, in the province’s francophone Evangeline region. The school has also operated a secondary campus in Charlottetown since 2012.
Darlene Arsenault, the college’s acting president, said the school currently rents both of these facilities. She would like to see that change.
“We need a place where we can have all our programs that can be done there, and then have also different programs in Charlottetown,” she said.
“We’re talking with the federal and provincial government to see what is possible and we’ve started to move that forward with a consultant that’s working on all the details.”
Arsenault says having the Collège de l’Île operate out of a larger Summerside campus would help increase the organization’s visibility and the public’s awareness of their programs.
