A new center for budding entrepreneurs has opened in Timmins.

Northern College, along with multiple community partners including the Chamber and the Business Enterprise Center, has launched the program.

Northern College President Fred Gibbons says although we would like to see international companies in the north, that isn’t always realistic.


Gibbons says it makes sense for students to create their own jobs, as opposed to waiting for companies to hire them.

The Entrepreneur Center will give basic training to all of Northern College’s students, as well as the community.
