Georgian is home to 13,000 full-time students, including 3,600 international students from 85 countries. Through our Research and Innovation department, Georgian promotes innovation and economic growth – collaborating with industry to meet a wide range of evolving research, development and talent recruitment needs. 


Entrepreneurial outcomes are embedded in all 130+ programs, with support for students and community members offered through the Henry Bernick Entrepreneurship Centre and the Centre for Changemaking and Social Innovation. The college operates three employment service locations in Barrie, Orillia and Orangeville.
