About George Brown College and Scholarship
The college was founded in 1967, the same year that Ontario’s community college system was created. Applied Arts and Technology Colleges were started on May 21st, 1965. George Brown, a significant Father of Confederation and 19th-century politician and newspaper proprietor (he created the Toronto Globe, the precursor of The Globe and Mail), is the name of the college.
To provide apprentice training on behalf of the local Department of Labor, the Provincial Institute of Trades (PIT), the college’s forerunner, was established in 1951. The PIT opened its doors at 21 Nassau Street in Toronto’s Kensington Market in 1952. By 1961, it had expanded by adding two more buildings to the property and was providing courses in structural steel fabrication, welding, barbering, diesel mechanics, jewelry design, and watchmaking. At 555 Davenport Road, next to Casa Loma, the province established the Provincial Institute of Trades and Occupations (PITO), a sibling training facility.
The PIT and PITO were both incorporated into George Brown College when it was established in 1967. The college then established its Kensington and Casa Loma campuses on the former locations of the two institutes. Additionally, George Brown College went on to incorporate five Toronto-area schools of nursing, including St. Joseph’s, St. Michael’s, Toronto General, Atkinson (Toronto Western), and Nightingale, into a third campus at 507 College Street in 1969.
The George, housing for students at George Brown, debuted that year. The building was once a part of the 2015 Pan Am/Para Pan Am Games Athletes Village and is situated at 80 Cooperage St. E., close to Cherry and Front Streets in Toronto’s Distillery District.
Additionally, the Lucie and Thornton Blackburn Conference Center is housed in the structure. The building bears the names of a wife and a husband who fled slavery, founded Toronto’s first taxi company, assisted in establishing Little Trinity Anglican Church, and promoted anti-slavery campaigns. The conference center’s mural, which was made by students, tells their tale.
