With approval from the board this week, Canadore College is looking to add a number of new programs.

“We looked at everything from Indigenous storytelling to entrepreneurship to hotel, resort, restaurant management post-graduate certificate to genome programs, to leverage our recent announcement with a DNA lab,” Canadore President George Burton tells BayToday.

Others include Digital Visual Effects, Recording Engineering and Sports Entrepreneurship and Administration.

The college says some are unique to the north and could start this September.

The next step is to get provincial approval.

Burton also says they may be adding even more programs in the coming months.

“We probably have another 13 coming forward, if not at the next board meeting, the following board meeting,” he says.

Here’s the list of programs approved by the board this week:
– Business trades entrepreneurship certificate
– Digital visual effects diploma
– Entrepreneurship and innovation certificate
– Entrepreneurship and innovation management graduate certificate
– Functional genomics and counselling graduate certificate
– Human resources management graduate certificate
– Hotel, resort, restaurant management entrepreneurship graduate certificate
– Indigenous visual storytelling certificate
– Product engineering – advanced manufacturing and robotics technology advanced diploma
– Recording engineering – music production diploma
