LaSalle College, was founded by Mr. Jean-Paul Morin in 1959 in the LaSalle borough of Montreal. Mr. Morin's mission was to create job opportunities for the Quebec population by providing education that was in line with job market demands. In response to the growing demand for administrative labour, the College offered its first program in secretarial training.
The College soon directed its energy to develop fashion training. In 1976, LaSalle College became eligible to receive government subsidies. By 1981, the Québec Ministry of Education officially recognized the College as an educational establishment. From the 1990's to present day, LaSalle College has experienced a steady expansion of their educational network to countries around the world. With the establishment of satellite services, LaSalle College is able to cater specifically to the needs of its growing student body.
