In 2018, Canadore College in North Bay opened the Village, a spacious facility that focuses on the integration of Indigenous, Eastern and Western healing and wellness practices. It acts as a model for intergenerational living, combining community and seniors’ care with teaching, skills training and applied research. The college offers diploma, certificate, apprenticeship and academic upgrading programs, including aviation studies, business management, Indigenous studies, trades and technology, and biotechnology and environmental studies. Next fall, the college will launch its first bachelor’s degree, in advanced manufacturing technology management.

Twenty-five per cent of Canadore’s students identify as First Nation, Métis or Inuit. The First Peoples’ Centre, which has a design inspired by natural elements and the teachings of the medicine wheel, is one of the college’s resources. Canadore offers specialized facilities for media studies, including a post-production centre, which features a mix stage, a colour correction room and dialogue replacement equipment. The school has three campuses in North Bay and one in Parry Sound. The Education Centre in North Bay is on a beautiful 260-hectare wooded escarpment. Three apartment-style residences are available near College Drive campus in North Bay. All suites include full kitchens.
