Algoma University

Algoma University, established in Sault Ste. Marie in 1965, gained independence in 2008 from its origins as an affiliate college of Laurentian University. Algoma has since grown to offer academic programming in Brampton and Timmins, along with an expanding online presence.

As a teaching-focused university, Algoma provides a range of degrees and certificates spanning the liberal arts, sciences and professional disciplines; including offerings through its Faculty of Cross-Cultural Studies, Schools of Business and Economics, Computer Science and Technology, Life Sciences and the Environment and Social Work. Located on three unique campus locations in Sault Ste. Marie, Brampton and Timmins, Algoma offers an immersive and personal educational experience.

The Sault Ste. Marie campus, located on the site of the former Shingwauk Indian Residential School, provides a unique, historically rich setting for a cross-cultural community in which Anishinaabe (First Nation, Métis, and Inuit), Canadian, and international students learn from one another in a spirit of friendship and respect while advancing efforts to address truth, healing and reconciliation.
