Canadore unveils solutions for North Bay’s student housing shortage


Canadore College recently unveiled how it plans to tackle North Bay’s student housing shortage. In addition to revitalizing the on-campus townhouses known as “the Greens,” Canadore will also lease, renovate, and expand a downtown building into apartment complex with one- and two-bedroom apartments, which will be made available to students starting this July. The college will also implement a Homestay program that pairs students with seniors in the community. With the aid of college mentors, the students and seniors will provide support for one another culturally, socially, and emotionally. “We can actually help students find housing and do something really good for the community at the same time,” said Canadore VP of strategic infrastructure, Indigenous and learner services Shawn Chorney.
