D’Arcy Lane Incorporated is registered as a Private Career College under the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005. Opened in 1986 and located in Downtown London, D’Arcy Lane is one of the founding institutions of Registered Massage Therapy in Ontario.
Offering programs in Registered Massage Therapy and Equine Massage Therapy, D’Arcy Lane is the longest running ministry approved Massage Therapy School in South Western Ontario.
With over 20 years’ experience in preparing students with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in Massage Therapy and Equine Massage Therapy, the D’Arcy Lane Institute will move into the current triOS College location on First Street in London. As part of the transaction, triOS College has agreed to provide $150,000 of scholarships to Oneida Nation of the Thames members that will enable them to receive training for new careers in any triOS programs.

In the face of hardship, many of these students took the necessary steps to move forward and continue their education so that they could graduate and start working in the industries of their choice.
Rebeccah Jacobs had been working on a Personal Support Worker diploma at Everest, and had three small children to worry about when the school closed.
“It was an emotional situation,” says Jacobs. “I didn’t know where it was going to leave me regarding the school process.”
In looking to triOS for help, Jacobs was able to enroll in their Personal Support Worker diploma program. She graduated with honours and had a message for those interested in going back to school.

“It is with great excitement that we are able to bring the D’Arcy Lane Institute and its employees into the triOS family. They are one of the original Massage Therapy Institutions and have built an outstanding reputation in London over the years,” says Frank Gerencser, CEO, triOS College. “We will continue to build upon that reputation as we grow the Massage Therapy and Equine Massage Therapy programs in Ontario.”
The London campus has been outfitted with a brand new massage therapy clinic to provide students with an environment that mimics real-world scenarios, and allows clinical hours to be obtained on campus grounds. Massage services provided by our students will be offered to the public at a reduced rate.
Additionally, triOS College’s Hamilton location has added a brand new massage therapy clinic to their campus and will be offering the 88 week program to students within the area.
triOS is proud to begin offering the Massage Therapy and the Equine Massage Therapy diploma programs to students across Ontario, responding to the market need for Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) and Registered Equine Massage Therapists (REMTs) in today’s workforce.
“We are pleased to transition the ownership of D’Arcy Lane Institute to triOS College from the Oneida Nation of the Thames. triOS has the expertise and resources to grow the Institute and provide career opportunities for its graduates,” stated Acting Chief, Charity Doxtator of Oneida Nation of the Thames. “We are pleased to continue our association with D’Arcy Lane Institute and triOS College through the scholarship program,” she added.
D’Arcy Lane will continue to train current students and triOS College will accept new students in classes that begin in September 2017.
triOS has assisted over 200 former Everest students in finishing their education at seven out of nine Ontario campuses, and has been celebrating these students graduations over the past couple months.
It is expected that 35 more of these students will graduate from triOS over the next year.
