Collège des Grands-Lacs (English, College of the Great Lakes) was a francophone College of Applied Arts and Technology in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

It was established in 1995 as Ontario's third college specifically serving the Franco-Ontarian population, after La Cité collégiale in Ottawa and Collège Boréal in Sudbury.

It began as a "virtual college", i.e., it had no physical campus, and offered instruction only by distance. In 1999, a campus was opened on College Street in Toronto.[1] In 2001, however, the College's Board of Governors decided to close the college, due to declining enrolment. The Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities begin negotiations with the College Boréal to offer program in Central and Southwestern Ontario.[2]

The college ceased operations in 2002. Its programs and services were taken over by Collège Boréal; initially offering its classes at the Carlaw Avenue campus of Centennial College in Toronto, Boréal moved to its own new campus at One Yonge Street in 2012.[3]
