Through the Regional Chair's Classic, more than $6.8 million has been raised to provide assistance to students in financial need at Durham College and the Ontario Tech University and Ontario Shores Foundation for Mental Health.
Together, we’re leading the way at Durham College (DC). With campuses in Oshawa and Whitby, DC offers over 11,400 full-time students access to more than 140 post-secondary programs, including four honours bachelor degrees and nine apprenticeship programs.
DC enables students to develop career-ready skills for the ever-changing job market by providing an exceptional college education. With a focus on experiential learning, led by expert faculty, through field placements, applied research, co-op and other hands-on opportunities, DC grads are known for having the skills and knowledge employers need.
At the Oshawa campus, the Centre for Collaborative Education brings together local, Indigenous and global communities, featuring the Rotary Global Classroom, Durham College Spa and interprofessional simulation and anatomy labs. The campus is also home to four of the college’s applied research centres, including the AI Hub, Centre for Cybersecurity Innovation, Mixed Reality Capture Studio and Social Impact Hub.
At DC’s Whitby campus, the new 60,000 sq. ft. Centre for Skilled Trades and Technology shines a spotlight on industrial skilled trades training, innovation and education, and includes a double-height shop lab, new classrooms and student touchdown spaces, among other features. The campus also features the W. Galen Weston Centre for Food, which is home to the award-winning full-service restaurant, Bistro ’67; a retail store, Pantry; and the Barrett Centre of Innovation in Sustainable Urban Agriculture and its community-inspired urban farm.
DC extends its gratitude to all those involved with the Regional Chair's Classic. The generosity of participants has resulted in much-needed financial assistance for hundreds of students so they can complete their post-secondary education. That means students feel inspired to follow their dreams and confident to succeed as tomorrow’s leaders.

More than four out of five graduating students participated in work-integrated learning through opportunities such as co-ops, internships and practicums.
The university houses more than 70 specialized research laboratories and facilities, a testament to our commitment of attracting leading scholars and stimulating their success and our students.
The university wants to grow into an even more innovative mixed-use, vibrant community hub.

This expansion will establish the new classrooms, laboratories and infrastructure required to provide students, professors and researchers with the space they need to build Canada’s competitiveness while creating an exciting and rewarding educational experience.
The generosity of community partners expressed through events such as the Regional Chair's Classic is deeply appreciated by Ontario Tech University’s students, faculty, staff and Board of Governors.
