An evening with Hon. Brad Duguid, MPP hosted by CCO

[Private Career Colleges] “quickly provide training to students looking to re-enter the job market. In fact, without private career colleges delivering these important training and education programs, it would cost the government $330 million to deliver them at publicly funded colleges,” Duguid said in a statement. -Toronto Star, January 21, 2014
