It has an enrollment of approximately 2,700 students in 7 pre-university and technical programmes and 4400 participants in adult education and corporate programmes.

The college traces its origins to the merger of several institutions which became public ones in 1967, when the Quebec system of CEGEPs was created.
The Collège Bois-de-Boulogne 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 given elsewhere in Canada in preparation for a chosen field in university.
