Humber was established in 1967 under its founding President, Gordon Wragg. The first new section of Humber College opened on Monday September 11, 1967 at James S. Bell Elementary School, a public school on Lake Shore Boulevard West. The Lakeshore Campus began with the addition of the manpower retraining programs on Queen Elizabeth Way in Etobicoke. In November 1968, North Campus was officially opened by Mayor E. A. Horton of Etobicoke and Mayor Jack Moulton of York. In the early 1970s, student enrollment was rapidly increasing which led Humber to expand its business and technology programs at both the North and Lakeshore Campuses. Humber College had the largest group of business students in the province. Three year co-op programs were developed in the early 1970s in a range of technology and business programs.  Humber became Canada's largest college with over 27,000 full-time and 50,000 part-time learners.

Student life

The best place to leave stress behind is the gym. Varsity and intramural programs run seasonally, but fitness programs run all year long. We also have great work-out facilities where you can work up a sweat.
