$937,000 grant for Canadore College Research Centre

Several short-term research projects are getting started at Canadore College.  

Topics include homelessness, school bus safety, a survey of newcomers to North Bay, and burnout rates for local healthcare workers. 

The college’s Research Centre has received a $937,000 grant from the National Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC).  

“While the funding focuses on social innovation areas, it also allows us to expand our ability to support our partners and enhance our research capacity and student training experience,” says Dr. Christina DeRoche, Research Centre Director.

Dakota Hamilton, a second-year student in the Mental Health and Addictions program, has contributed to various projects.  

“Each assignment has given me the ability to grow, learn, and make a positive impact on the community,” Hamilton says. “With the funds from the Mobilize grant, I have helped support different initiatives, and I am reminded of what wonderful opportunities there are for students here at Canadore.” 

With two students hired in the first year to support six different projects, officials say the grant will allow Canadore to hire up to six more students per year by year five. 

College President and CEO George Burton says not only do their students benefit from these research opportunities, but the community does as well.
