Charlottetown, PE – A $7.5 million revitalization effort at Holland College’s Tourism and Culinary Centre, home to The Culinary Institute of Canada, is well underway, and the dining room and marché servery will be open to the public on Friday, November 17.

The renovation and expansion meets the changing needs of the dynamic culinary industry in Canada and around the world. Approximately 8,500 sq. ft. in kitchen space has been revitalized, and the approximate 5,000 sq. ft. expansion incorporates a state-of-the art butchery, a cold cuisine production kitchen, and more than $1.8 million in new and emerging technologies and equipment.

The dining room, first floor banquet, and marché areas have been redesigned to represent modern food service operations. A new grab and go located in the lobby of the main floor will give visitors the opportunity to pick up a delicious lunch on their way to a meeting or on their way back to the office.

The result of this investment, $5.1 million of which was provided by the federal and provincial governments with the balance raised through the Holland College Foundation’s Nourish campaign, will ensure that The Culinary Institute of Canada continues to be the premier culinary school in the country, providing students in the Culinary Arts, Pastry Arts, and International Hospitality Management programs with extraordinary learning opportunities.

In addition to the renovation and expansion project, a new slate of entrance awards for students enrolled in programs at The Culinary Institute of Canada will also be established through a $500,000 investment in student financial aid.
