President's Message

Dear students and parents,


I would like to welcome both the new and returning members of our community for another year. As we live, study, and work together, we are transforming wishes and dreams into decisions and plans. Certainly, throughout our classes, tutorials, and consultations, Berton College helps each student succeed in both academics and extra-curriculum.


Also, as we prepare ourselves, we may think about the life of Pierre Berton, the famous Canadian writer whose name is on our school. His work and humanity have had a lasting influence on Canada; in the same way, your lives may help or inspire the next generation of students. Therefore, as our staff work for each student’s individual success, we always remember the larger goal expressed by Canada’s motto: “We desire a better country.”


Here, at Berton College, all of our staff work as a team to meet all of the students’ needs, whether through academic support, personal counselling, or reliable academic advice. As I end this letter, I am as determined as ever to provide the strongest possible support to everyone of you in the coming year.
