Kemptville Campus Renewal

Kemptville College has long been recognized as a defining element of the local community, having significant regional impact well beyond the boundaries of the Municipality of North Grenville. The announcement by the University of Guelph in March of 2014 to no longer support the continuation of educational programming at the Kemptville came as a shock to many farmers, residents, businesses – and potential students.

The Municipality has taken a leadership role in coordinating and managing the efforts to see Kemptville Campus renewed as a driving force in the region’s economy. The information on this page is intended to keep our community up to date on the progress of these efforts. Please visit often and pass along to others.

In addition, please visit the Kemptville Campus website for more detailed information.
