NORTH GRENVILLE, Ont. – A renewal task force looking into the future of the Kemptville campus of the University of Guelph is welcoming a report discussed at North Grenville municipal council this week.

The report, prepared by McSweeney and Associates of Ottawa, is calling for a Kemptville Center for Rural Advancement, by running the campus through a not-for-profit corporation.

It would partner with existing educational institutions for program delivery and two identified in the report – Vermont Technical College and Trent University – have already expressed interest.

The report now goes to provincial facilitator Lyle Vanclief for consideration in the long term plan for the future of Kemptville College.

The Kemptville College Renewal Task Force was established following the University of Guelph’s announcement to close the Kemptville campus.
