Welcome to the Business Department.

The fundamental purpose of the business studies program is to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to achieve success in secondary school, the workplace, postsecondary education or training, and daily life.
The goals of the business studies curriculum are to enable students to:
  • gain an understanding of business concepts through the study of subjects such as accounting, entrepreneurship, information and communication technology (ICT), international business, marketing, and business leadership;
  • achieve business, economic, financial, and digital literacy;
  • develop the skills, including critical thinking skills, and strategies required to conduct research and inquiry and communicate findings accurately, ethically, and effectively;
  • apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes acquired through the study of business to a variety of learning tasks and relate them to business phenomena on the local, national, and global levels. (The Ontario Curriculum, 2006)
Business activity affects the daily lives of all Canadians as we work, spend, save, invest, travel, and play.
