Fleming Announcements, Updates, and FAQs

Updates and FAQs

There has been conjecture and misinformation regarding the recently announced decisions to suspend some program admissions for the fall of 2024. I am writing to you today to provide more details, and to address the concerns in the media as well as the rumours. Please note the following facts:

  • Frost campus is NOT closing. In fact, the intention is to grow applied research at Fleming College through this campus, as well as related programs;
  • Fleming continues to be among the colleges that deliver the highest number of environmental related courses in Ontario;
  • Of the 29 suspended programs at Fleming for admission in fall of 2024, some have low projected domestic enrollment, others have zero projected domestic enrollment, and other programs are no longer financially sustainable with enrolment levels that do not cover the cost of delivery;
  • Fleming continues to offer almost 100 programs to current and prospective students; and
  • Fleming College plans to grow in areas such as applied research (noted above) healthcare, and other programs that meet local and provincial needs.

Since the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announcement in January, we have conveyed information to you and union leadership about the seriousness of the situation, and I did appreciate hearing from many of you at the fireside discussions.

Any program suspension decisions rest with the authority of the Board of Governors of Fleming College. Until a Board of Governors motion was passed, there was no related information to convey.

Immediately following the board decision on April 23, we communicated the information to the unions. We then felt it was prudent to meet with the program faculty and program support staff to inform them of the decision and our commitment to our students through the teach out periods. Key stakeholders were also contacted.

I want to assure you that the academic, management and governance leadership of Fleming College is committed to honouring the OPSEU collective agreements and the employment stability process, to mitigate impacts, wherever required.

Our students remain our focus as we move forward with financial stability and solid program offerings.

We will continue to update you as more facts are known.

Maureen Adamson,
President, Fleming College
