Mississauga will soon be home to the largest of five new Simons stores scheduled to open across Canada, marking only the second time the company has set up shop outside Quebec.
Local shoppers unfamiliar with Simons can expect a family feel across the chain, said Robert Mackalski, a brand expert and faculty lecturer at McGill University.
Desautels, Ivey, Rotman, Sauder and Schulich all cracked the top 100 on the Financial Times’ business school rankings in 2014.

In September, the Quebec government announced that McGill’s operating grant would be almost $15 million less than what it had proposed in the spring — and warned that a second wave of cuts were to come. On Nov. 12, Quebec’s universities and CEGEPs were hit with that new round of cuts, amounting to $31.6 million. McGill’s share is close to $5 million. Provost Anthony C.

Being entrusted to guide these exceptional students is a huge responsibility, which is why the Principal’s Prize for Excellence in Teaching was established in 2000 to celebrate teachers.
