Entrepreneurship Academy

Don’t just go out and get a job, create your own.

To meet growing entrepreneurial demand, Canadore College has launched the first-ever Entrepreneurship Academy in Canada. The Academy’s establishment is positioned to revolutionize and transform learning experiences and be responsive to new ways of leading, thinking and learning.

The Entrepreneurship Academy at Canadore is not your typical school of study. Instead, it acts as a “hub” to connect students and community members to the ever-growing network of Entrepreneurial supports, startups, mentors and learning platforms. Both students and members of the community who wish to start their own business are welcome to access the resources offered by the Entrepreneurship Academy.  Learn to think like a boss and gain the skills to manage or expand your own business.

There are a wide variety of Canadore programs that will benefit from the resources in the Entrepreneurship Academy. The Academy is open to anyone who wishes to take their new or existing skills and turn it into something of their own. Some of these programs include:

  • Automotive/Mechanics Programs
  • Engineering
  • Culinary Programs
  • Electrician Programs
  • Game Design
  • Carpenter Programs
  • Graphic Design
  • Mechanical Techniques
  • Plumber Programs
