Post Secondary Education

Ontario's publicly-funded postsecondary education system has some of the best programs, offered by renowned experts, in the world.

Universities offer a complete range of programs in the arts and sciences, as well as graduate and professional programs. Colleges prepare students for careers in business, applied arts, technology, and health sciences. They also offer part-time and continuing education courses, apprenticeships and skills training programs. 

There are several college and university campuses within an one hour drive of Lanark County.

Note: International students will require a temporary study permit in order to study in Ontario.

Willis College of Business, Health and Technology

For the past 116 years, Willis College has been involved internationally.  Willis has formed a partnership with a Chinese college and universities to develop and deliver joint venture educational programs that are fully recognized by Canada and China.  The college is also working to develop and deliver similar programs with several countries in the Middle East, as well as former Eastern Bloc countries such as Romania.

As well, Willis College provides educational services to foreign students at its Ontario campuses in Smiths Falls and Ottawa.  Should foreign students lack English language proficiency, Willis has an excellent working relationship with a national leader in ESL studies.
