Fanshawe College Looking At Saugeen Shores

Saugeen Shores | by John Divinski  

The College wants to live-stream an entrepreneurship and management program

Fanshawe College of London still has to go through the formal process, but if support from Saugeen Shores council is any indication, they'll soon be in town.

Fanshawe spokesperson Heather MacKenzie-Card says the "plan is to be able to offer the business entrepreneurship and management program" that will be live-streamed from Goderich.

They were before town council May 13th, asking to use available space at the Southampton Fire Hall as class space and asking the town for an in-kind contribution that would see any fee waived for one year.

MacKenzie-Card says they want to service everyone but particularly those who might not be able to leave Saugeen Shores, yet want to pursue post-secondary education.

Fanshawe is already conducting classes in Kincardine, Tiverton, Clinton and Goderich.

She says the program has been very successful in Goderich where the result was six brand new businesses that started along with students who started in a business-type management-related environment, working as employees.

MacKenzie-Card says if approved, the classes would begin this September.

Council, although excited about the prospect, had the request referred to staff for comment but felt there would be no problem with the ask.
