(Queen’s Park) – On Monday, Amrit Mangat, MPP for Mississauga–Brampton South, made a statement in the Legislature about the government’s recent announcement that it is expanding access to university-led postsecondary education in Brampton.
The statement read as follows:
I am pleased to share with this House exciting and much anticipated news. On October 26th, the constituents of my great riding of Mississauga–Brampton South and surrounding communities learned that our government will be bringing a university-led postsecondary site to Brampton.
This initiative by our government is significant as it will pave the way for coming generations towards a better and brighter future through higher learning.
The institution’s main focus will be science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.
As Ontario moves towards a technology- and knowledge-based economy, this institution will prepare students for the jobs of today and tomorrow, and offer them opportunities for the training and skills development needed for the leading sectors of our economy.
This institution will also address the needs of an underserved but fast growing population area, and ensure that students find more educational opportunities closer to home.
Mr. Speaker, Bramptonians are excited about our government’s initiative towards building dynamic and vibrant communities and great places to live, work and study.”
