ABOUT JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE
Named after Sir John Abbott, Canada's third prime minister, the College primarily serves Montreal's
West Island community, although you can also meet students here from other parts of Quebec and
Canada. Located in historic Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, on the western tip of the Island of Montreal, John
Abbott’s distinctive red brick buildings and magnificent campus were originally deeded to McGill
University in 1906 by wealthy industrialist Sir William Macdonald.
Established in 1971, John Abbott offers five pre-university and eleven career programs, including
Quebec’s only English-language CEGEP training in Pre-Hospital Emergency Care, Dental Hygiene,
Information and Library Technologies, Engineering Technologies, Police Technology, and Youth and
Adult Correctional Intervention. Over 5000 students are enrolled in the Day Division and another 2000
in Continuing Education. Only a half hour drive from downtown Montreal, the College is easily
accessible by city bus or commuter train
