The College was saddened to hear of the passing of longtime Business Administration teacher Jay Rubinstein on April 21, 2014. Jay taught at Vanier throughout the 1980s and 1990s and was always a very popular teacher with his students.

Jay was also the host and driving force behind a series of TV shows called "Contemporary Business" which aired in the 1980s on CF Cable, and was also the author of several books on business. Two of them are still available in the Vanier College Library.

We extend our condolences to his entire family.
