As one of the only bilingual university campuses in Canada, all 2,700 Glendon students — from beginners to immersion grads — finish with a working knowledge of English and French, many picking up a third language along the way. Glendon’s beautiful, park-like campus is set in a scenic mid-town neighbourhood, only moments from the boutiques, restaurants and nightlife of downtown Toronto.
Acknowledgement of Indigenous Peoples and Traditional Territories - York University acknowledges its presence on the traditional territory of many Indigenous Nations. The area known as Tkaronto has been care taken by the Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Wendat, and the Métis. It is now home to many Indigenous peoples. We acknowledge the current treaty holders and the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation. This territory is subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement to peaceably share and care for the Great Lakes region.
