Fleming was the first college to offer GIS training in Ontario, and has been doing so for more than 20 years. During the final two semesters of the academic year, students work on their GIS Co-operative Project; they choose a project, write a proposal and complete projects that are supplied by the GIS industry, municipalities and government clients.

Graduates of Fleming’s cartographic programs have earned a reputation for excellence through their achievements in the workplace, and through cartographic and GIS competitions. Over the years, they have captured 80 American Congress on Surveying and Mapping awards in annual competitions (student category), as well as numerous awards from the Canadian Cartographic Association and the Canadian Institute of Geomatics. Graduate employment rates remain high and Fleming’s reputation in the GIS industry remains unequalled.
