York University Markham Campus Topping Off Ceremony
THORNHILL – We are building Ontario! It was a pleasure to attend the official York University Markham campus topping off ceremony today alongside my colleagues Minister Jill Dunlop, MPP Billy Pang, and MPP Logan Kanapathi. It was humbling to witness the final steel pillar placed on what will soon become a hub of learning and activity.
The number of 18 to 22-year-olds in York Region is projected to grow by 34 per cent by 2041, the highest growth rate in Ontario. This change will allow prospective students to study closer to home while supporting the talent needs of the region’s burgeoning high-tech sector.
Students from Markham will now have enhanced access to education in their backyard! The new Markham Centre Campus is a model of responsible expansion, which will offer local students access to a world-class education and prepare them for the jobs of the future.
