As of 2019, George Brown College's Centre for Hospitality and Culinary Arts is proud to be LEAF Certified (www.leafme.org) at Level 2 through our positive efforts to become an environmentally-friendly and sustainable food service establishment. This certification covers the entire Chef School facilities and operations as well as retail locations at The Cafe and The Chefs House restaurant.
