Meet our Recruitment and Liaison Team

Darryl Oliver

Hello, everyone! I’m one of Canadore’s liaison officers that you might just meet this year.

I think the most challenging part of being a student is knowing just which program you should take: but don’t sweat it! I took 3 different programs ended up with an English degree and Human Resources post-graduate certificate, which is a strange combination to be sure. Most importantly, the experience of going to school is everlasting: the friendships, the personal growth, all the way to graduation!  I loved the time I spent in school, and I think you will too.

After finishing school I spent time in a Headhunting role (recruiting for companies) for 4 years, then moved into working as a liaison officer, with time in Admissions as well.  I know that all of my prior positions have made me a better liaison officer to help you with your questions and interest as you turn your attention to the next step in your journey.  If you have any questions along the way, let me know and I’m glad to help!


Ric Potvin

Hi there!

I’m a Canadore graduate from the Broadcasting – Television and Video Production program.

I worked several years after college with CTV as an ENG news camera operator, News Editor, and Director. I returned to Canadore in 2000 to teach for a year and have been here ever since, the atmosphere, friendly environment and people made it an easy transition.

Over my twenty year employment with Canadore, I’ve taking on several roles, including Professor, Technologist, and now Liaison Officer. I look forward to discussing your college options with you and once you become a part of the Canadore family, look forward to helping you while you train for your career path.

Hi everyone! Welcome to Canadore! 

Having been born and raised in beautiful North Bay, I remember how eager I was to head out into the world, to continue my schooling, and to learn as much as I could about others and myself. I first went to University to study Fine Art, then to College for a second degree in Journalism. I travelled around the world, working as a documentary filmmaker and a photojournalist for CBC, Globe & Mail, Canadian Press, and more. I even received an award from the Royal Family for my humanitarian work. All of these experiences have given me a wide perspective of the world, an understanding of different kinds of people, and a passion for uplifting others! 

Returning to my hometown has helped me follow this calling, by helping students on their journeys through school, finding their careers, and discovering their own purpose in life. It can feel scary, but I believe we all have something special in us - a unique voice to offer to the world. It is an honour to work with you and help you discover just what that voice is! Welcome to our campus and community!
