North Meets South Exchange Summer Camp

Boot Camp 2016 - Group shot.jpg
 

In July 2017, the Jr. EC piloted an amazing new program for high school students in Ontario & Nunavut. This 9-day exchange program brought students together for an experiential learning opportunity like no other.  All students will travelled together to Iqaluit, Nunavut and then to Toronto, Ontario for a hands-on program designed to equip them with business, entrepreneurship, personal finance, job readiness and critical thinking skills. The program served to connect students with different backgrounds and provide an opportunity to learn about life in the north and south of Canada. The 9-day program culminated with a business competition where students pitched their business ideas to a group of Canadian business leaders and won special prizes and academic scholarships. Congratulations to this year's winners and all of our fabulous students. We have made memories to last a lifetime!
