Canadore summer programming brings economic benefits to North Bay

April 11, 2018

Canadore College is finding new ways to generate revenue and provide an important economic contribution to its local community during the summer months, writes Rocco Frangione. The addition of new summer programming now allows Canadore to enroll 350 full-time students over the summer, a fact that Vice President of Enrolment, Management, Indigenous and Student Affairs Shawn Chorney says is crucial to the economy of North Bay, Ontario. “This snippet of summer activity adds about $5 million to the local economy,” Chorney told Moose News. “The students are here, some are also working and spending money.  And because we have several hundred exchange students, their families come for visits.” My North Bay Now
