Acknowledging the Territory

We acknowledge that the land that Fleming College is on, is the traditional territory of the Michi Saagig Anishnaabe, people of the North shore of Lake Ontario and its tributaries. Fleming College Campus locations are covered by eighteen treaties and agreements that the Michi Saagig Anishnaabe participated in from 1781 to 1923.

Fleming College has settled on this land and recognizes that the region is now home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and the importance of respecting the voices and history of Indigenous communities. We are grateful to work on this land and will continue to build authentic and reciprocal relationships.

Fleming Students Shine at Skills Ontario

Peterborough, ON (May 5, 2023) - Fleming College students took home medals in multiple categories this week during the annual Skills Ontario competition at the Toronto Congress Centre.

The Skills Ontario competition pit some of the best skilled trades and technology students from across the province against each other during two and a half days of competition.

The event is also a chance for students to put their learned skills and knowledge to the test in a high-pressure environment while they’re up against the clock, as family, friends and potential future employers cheer them on.

Joel Tucker, a recent graduate from the Carpentry Apprenticeship program, nabbed a Bronze medal in the Individual Carpentry competition.

Owen Mitchell, a graduating student in Fleming’s Welding and Fabrication Technician program, took home a Silver medal in the Welding category.

Fellow Welding and Fabrication graduate Kenzie Backus scored a Bronze medal in the Metal Fabricator competition.

Fleming students weren’t the only ones recognized for their innovation and creativity this week. Fleming’s high trafficked booth was awarded first place for its unique design and interactive displays, educational value provided, relevance to skilled trades and technologies and the overall memorable experience. The award resulted in a trophy, free booth at the 2024 Career Exploration Showcase, and recognition in the Skills Ontario Newsletter, Summer 2023.

Fleming College is proud of all that our students, staff and faculty accomplished this week.

A Dream Years in the Making

“It was a dream-come-true moment for me, when I received the offer of admission from Fleming College.”

Construction Health and Safety Manager Cyril Matthews does not make this statement lightly.

He was forced to put his dream on hold for years after arriving in Canada in 2011 from India.

A former Health Inspector in India, Cyril found that he could not get a career in his field in Ontario. Instead, he took a job as a Tool and Die Maker to make ends meet.

But he never gave up, and applied to Fleming College’s Health, Safety and Environmental Compliance program in 2020.

Cyril graduated in April 2021, and almost immediately began working in his chosen field.

He credits Fleming’s unique program for helping him secure employment so quickly.

“I was well aware of the requirements to becoming a Health and Safety professional, and I was not able to find a different program anywhere else with similar courses,” he said.

The combination of hands-on learning and lab experience for not only making graduates highly employable but keeping students up to date on the latest developments in the industry.

The courses Cyril took in his program, like Occupational Health and Safety Law and Investigation and Inspection Techniques, are a crucial component of his current job, he said.

But what truly makes the program unique, Cyril said, was the combination of life and work experience his teachers brought to the classroom.

“Even if you are starting your job the next day after graduation, you will be able to perform way better than someone with many years of experience in the industry,” he said.

Cyril and his classmates received support well beyond their lessons.
Instructors helped them craft their resumes, create LinkedIn profiles, and launch their job hunts.

It was truly amazing, he said.

“If I am simply saying that it is a great place to learn, that would not be sufficient enough to describe my experience at Fleming,” Cyril said. “To someone who is thinking of attending Fleming College, or someone who takes education seriously, you will find that Fleming is the best place to go.”

Now happily employed in his chosen field, Cyril said he is facing a long career with plenty of potential growth within that sector.
Fleming’s program is recognized by the Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals, and graduates with a year of work experience are eligible to write the exam to become a Certified Registered Safety Technician.

Cyril said that will be his next step.

“I never kept my dreams off of my mind,” Cyril said. “The right thing happened at the right time, and now I am in the field I always wanted to be in.”
