The student experience of a lifetime awaits in North Bay, just 180 minutes north of Toronto, — where Canadore College’s three impressive campuses are located. Ask any student here about their journey so far, and they will express unwavering gratitude to their college’s unique, multifocal approach to knowledge and skill building — in which student success takes precedence, but programme and service excellence, connection to community, sustainability, and innovation are equally vital.
Students cover the above and more through experience, which could mean working on a film set, managing a kitchen, hosting community events, flying a plane, treating patients or strategising a business. When it comes to evolving learners into career-ready graduates, resources and opportunities are offered in abundance.
47,000 alumni across the globe can confirm the effectiveness of the College’s emphasis on experiential learning. If you’re a student with a dream, they will tell you that your journey to success begins at one of these dynamic divisions at Canadore:
School of Aviation
There are many reasons why Canadore College is a leader in aviation training — think of a 90,000 sq. ft. Aviation Campus right next to Jack Garland Airport’s 10,000 ft. runway, the largest number of aircraft out of any Ontario college, industry-standard training tools, and a long lineup of dedicated educators and staff.
Together and separately, they deliver eight dynamic full-time programmes:
Aircraft Structural Repair Technician, Aviation Fundamentals, Aviation Technician – Aircraft Maintenance, Aviation Technician – Avionics Maintenance, Aviation Technology – Aircraft Maintenance and Avionics, Aviation Technology – Aircraft Maintenance and Structures, First Peoples’ Aviation Technology – Flight, and Helicopter Flight Training.
School of Culinary Arts
Award-winning Chefs de Cuisine and expert professors welcome you to enjoy Canadore’s specialised culinary training facility, which includes classrooms, experimental and production kitchens, and its very own casual fine dining restaurant. It’s little wonder how graduates land employment in renowned hotel chains and restaurants across Canada and beyond. To become one of them, choose either the Culinary Management or Culinary Skills – Chef Training programme.
“Without any prior restaurant or industry experience, Canadore’s hospitality culinary programme staff provided me the necessary platform for success,” says graduate Steven Angelo Furgiuele, who is currently Chef de Cuisine and General Manager of Culina Mill Creek in Edmonton. “The variety of courses, paired with exposure to exciting ingredients, intimate classroom settings, modern techniques and industry insight were crucial to my base career development.”
