At Lakehead Orillia you will have direct access to dynamic faculty engaged in teaching and research across a broad spectrum of academic disciplines. Our focus on innovative programming makes Lakehead Orillia an excellent choice for post-secondary study.

Additionally, we offer exciting programs and certificates through our Office of Community Engagement and Lifelong Learning (CELL).

We are proud of our relationship with Georgian College through the Lakehead University-Georgian College Partnership, where we currently offer four degree-diploma programs including, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Applied Life Sciences, and Environmental Sustainability with a specialization in Ecosystem Management.

At Lakehead Orillia, we encourage our students to think critically while taking risks as they look towards integration into a future working world full of ever-changing challenges.
