Founded by the Congrégation de Notre-Dame in 1908, Marianopolis is proud to be part of the Congregation’s educational network in Quebec. Fellow member schools in the province are Collège Mont Notre-Dame in Sherbrooke, Collège Regina Assumpta in Montreal North, École Les Mélèzes in Joliette and Villa Maria High School in Montreal.

Marianopolis is pleased to be a member of the Consortium of English-language CEGEPs, Colleges and Universities of Quebec, an alliance of nine post-secondary institutions representing over 140,000 students.

Thanks this unique partnership that dates back to 1969, Marianopolis Music students take their instrumental and ensemble courses at the Schulich School of Music. They can also sing in the university’s choir and audition for McGill jazz, orchestra and wind ensembles. Marianopolis is the only school of its kind offering this exceptional musical training.
The Government of Canada’s Research Support Fund assists Canadian post-secondary institutions by covering a portion of the indirect costs associated with federally funded research. RSF grants are based on the funding received by researchers at the post-secondary institutions from the three federal research granting agencies: the Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC). Marianopolis College has benefitted from the support of the RSF since 2017 thanks to the SSHRC-funded research of Prof. Cory McKay. Indirect costs of research fall within the following five categories, as described on the Research Support Fund website: 1) research facilities; 2) research resources; 3) management and administration of the institution’s research enterprise; 4) regulatory requirements and accreditation; 5) intellectual property and knowledge mobilization. In 2023-2024, Marianopolis used the $27,281 RSF grant to support research resources and research facilities at the College’s Library, a central facility accessible to students in all programs of study.
The accord of friendship and mutual understanding between Marianopolis and Sakura no Seibo Junior College in Fukushima, Japan, two members of the Congrégation de Notre-Dame schools network, provides students, teachers and staff at both institutions with varied opportunities for educational enrichment and cultural exchange.
