Cégep Marin-Victorin was founded in 1965 as a teachers’ college specializing in teacher training. In 1969, the institution became a private college providing general education and professional training. In 1993, the Quebec government acquired the college and made it the province’s 47th public college. The Multicultural Education Center was established in the summer of 2002. The mission of the Multicultural Education Center is to provide a variety of college programs to students from various ethnic backgrounds in order to prepare their successful and customized transition to university studies or to integrate the job market.
