Why Woodstock for a University of Ottawa French and French Immersion campus?
Located at the crossroads of Highway 401 and 403, Woodstock is within a one-hour drive of two million Ontarians. Woodstock is also between the Franco-Ontarian communities of Welland and Windsor and the French designated communities of London and Hamilton. As Canada’s premiere bilingual university, a University of Ottawa campus in Woodstock means more of southwestern Ontario's university-bound students can look to a future that includes French.
The proposal will repurpose a number of existing buildings in the development of 70,000 ft2 of academic space within a campus-like setting located in Woodstock’s historical downtown core.
Our people are behind it! There is widespread support among residents and businesses to bring a uOttawa satellite campus to Woodstock and Oxford County. Help us make it happen!
