At the College Drive Campus, visitors can also experience the new Post Production at Canadore facilities and learn more about The Village construction.

Guests will have the chance to meet current students and professors, tour classrooms and labs, visit residence complexes, speak with student success learning advisors and admissions staff, and much more.

“There’s never been a better time to come and visit our campuses,” said Shawn Chorney, vice-president of enrolment management, indigenous and student services. “We have been investing in facilities expansions, program development, training equipment and resources, and evolving our services to achieve even greater student success. Canadore has also been growing our industry partnerships so that we can provide our students with the best applied learning opportunities possible. Our graduates are job-ready and competitive.”
