Lambton College wants to build two new facilities on campus within the next two years.

College President and CEO Judith Morris updated community members on their strategic plan at a breakfast event at the College Event Centre this morning.

Morris says they’ve been working with the Student Union and have secured funding for a new Recreation and Fitness Complex.

She says they’re just awaiting the outcome of a $20-million senior government funding proposal for a new Centre for Health Education and Sustainable Care.

Morris anticipates an answer this March or April.

She says the new buildings will help keep students in Lambton County.

It’s proposed both facilities be built adjacent to the college’s current gymnasium.

The cost of the two projects would total about $45-million.
