“Our $25,000 donation to Georgian College will be delivered to the school over the next five years,” said Rob Thornburn Jr., Executive Vice President of Huronia. “This is our way of helping our community and surrounding communities thrive by being able to provide education and training for our citizens in careers that are in high demand in Southern Georgian Bay.”

Thorburn went on to say, “whether it’s a full-time postsecondary program, a skills upgrading course, continuing education or ongoing training in an existing career – being able to stay local and receive world-class education means that the people who live and work in the surrounding areas can do that in a community they love and that they call home; it creates stronger ties to this great community.”

The John Di Poce South Georgian Bay Campus, located in Collingwood, features more 20,000 square feet of multi-function classrooms, a community room, state-of-the-art computer labs and a student lounge.

Huronia Alarm & Fire Security Inc. has been in business for over 40 years and is Central Ontario’s leading provider of home and business security and monitoring services, CCTV, fire and safety, lock, key and safe products and services, home theatre, audio and video consultation and entertainment room design, as well as cabling and smart home wiring for today’s home automation requirements.
