Our Business World is an interactive program designed to encourage students to explore how businesses are created and what factors are involved in helping a business thrive. The focus of the program is on the power of the entrepreneurial spirit in Canada in a free enterprise system. Our Business World is available in English or French.
Teachers can fully deliver the program on their own with the option to include pre-recorded volunteer-delivered content, or a volunteer can visit the classroom to do an hour of programming. We try to be as flexible as possible to support teachers!
