This Thursday, the Canadore Students’ Council and Hard Hat Hunter will be teaming up to host the Tools for Schools Work Boot Walkathon to raise funds for local trades and technology graduates to purchase tools required in their field.

Vice-president of Hard Hat Hunter, Paul Robillard, approached the college with the idea to help alleviate the burden felt by many graduates, who are expected to bring their own tools to work in the sector.

“We love, love, love to employ Canadore graduates,” said Robillard. “They come to the job-site ready, willing and able to be productive from the very first day. We have the utmost confidence in the programs and this is our way of helping to keep amazing talent working in the region.”

The walkathon fundraiser will consist of a variety of fun, industry-based activities, a barbeque and professional networking. High school students registered in a dual credit program also have the chance to win a tuition credit towards a full-time program at Canadore College.
