across central Ontario, with partnership revenue supporting enhancements designed to meet the needs of all
our students and local communities,” added West-Moynes.

Georgian@ILAC, as it will be known, will launch with three programs at ILAC’s boutique-style campus located
in downtown Toronto. Beginning as early as Jan. 2021, the initial program offerings will be a Business Diploma program, Global Business Management Graduate Certificate and Project Management Graduate Certificate.

This partnership combines Georgian’s experience and excellent reputation in postsecondary education, with
ILAC’s solid reputation as a leading language school with an exciting downtown Toronto location. Working
together, Georgian and ILAC will leverage their combined international student recruitment expertise to
attract a diversified student population from countries around the world.

”We are delighted to enter into a Public College Private Partnership with Georgian College. Students of
Georgian@ILAC will benefit from Georgian’s quality curriculum, while studying in downtown Toronto and
enjoying ILAC’s renowned international student culture focused on diversity,” said Jonathan Kolber, ILAC’s CEO. “This is also a natural extension opportunity for students in our English language and Pathways programs, who can now stay in the ILAC family as they continue to progress in their studies,” added Kolber.
