Founded in 1967, when the Quebec system of CEGEPs was created, it is today one of the largest CÉGEPs in Quebec. The College was created out of the amalgamation of two former institutions: the College Saint-Ignace and the Institut de technologies Laval, founded respectively in 1927 and 1941.

The College Saint-Ignace taught the humanities whereas the Institut de technologies de Laval offered the main trade programs of the era. Finally, in 1970, the adjoining school, the Institut des arts graphiques du Quebec, which was a school of printing, joined the College. Today, the College is: 3 pre-university programs; 26 technical programs; 6000 regular education/full-time students and 4000 continuous education/part-time students; 900 employees, divided between 600 faculty members and 300 management and support staff.

The name of the school comes from the district in which it is located which in turn comes from a Native hero going back to the origin of the colony.

Following the lead of McGill University (formerly the Redmen), the name "indiens" and its logo have been dropped from the college's sports teams.[1]


The CEGEP offers two types of programs: pre-university and technical. The pre-university programs, which take two years to complete, cover the subject matters which roughly correspond to the additional year of high school (grade 12) and the first year of university given elsewhere in Canada. The technical programs, which take three-years to complete, applies to students who wish to pursue a skill trade.
