The following statement is being issued by Dr. Ahmed Obaide, Canadore College Vice-President Academic:

Canadore College remains committed to the success of all our students including those enrolled in the Collaborative Bachelor of Science in Nursing program. Our program team, in coordination with our partner Nipissing University, has been working diligently to support student success and progression while ensuring compliance to the relevant standards of professional practice and accepted norms as well as the relevant policies and procedures. Canadore’s concerned faculty are responding directly to student inquiries in this matter. Our students’ well-being and best interest will always be our utmost priority.



Canadore College trains people through applied learning, leadership and innovation. It provides access to over 80 full-time quality programs and has outstanding faculty and provides success services to students from nearly 400 Canadian communities and 15 international countries. The College, its students, and alumni add $369 million to the Nipissing Parry Sound service area economy. Approximately 1,000 students graduate from Canadore each year, and they join 46,000 alumni working across the globe. Canadore receives less than 50 per cent of its traditional funding from the provincial Ministry of Colleges and Universities and relies on its own innovation and entrepreneurial endeavours and generous donors for the balance.
