Mayor Al McDonald officially proclaimed this as Canadore College Week in North Bay this morning. This honour for Canadore is a part of celebrating its 50th anniversary.
President George Burton says college education has had a tangible impact in developing communities here in North Bay, and around the world.

These celebrations tie into a provincial campaign, called The Start of Something Amazing, which is focused on the college system in Ontario.
