George Brown College was as a city in 1834 and situated in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Toronto is Canada’s largest municipality and it is made up of the former cities of Toronto, North York, Scarborough, York and Etobicoke, and the former borough of East York.
The institution was named after a Canadian politician. He was a 19th century Scottish-born newspaper publisher, a politician (he founded The Globe, precursor to The Globe and Mail) and was one of the Fathers of Confederation. He was an essential figure in the formation of Canada.
Brown was born in 1818 and died in the year 1880. He was a strong believer in public education. In 1967, the Ontario Minister of Education, Bill Davis, suggested that George Brown College would be a suitable name for the new college of applied arts and technology.
George Brown College stated operation in 1968, admitting just over 2,000 students. In addition to programs in construction, early childhood education, dental services and the culinary arts – subjects we continue to teach – we once offered programs that are not quite relevant today, like sign writing or watchmaking. It is true to say, at George Brown, we prepared students for careers at sea through a marine engineering program.
