Ontario is getting a brand new university in Niagara Falls
Niagara Falls is one of Canada’s top tourist attractions. Not only is it one of the world's largest waterfalls, it will also be home to The University of Niagara Falls Canada.
After receiving the Government of Ontario's approval this week, the university will provide the province with major economic and employment benefits. Operated by Global University Systems Canada, it will allow students to gain the knowledge and skills needed to excel in the workforce.
