Business activity affects the daily lives of all Canadians as they work, spend, save, invest, travel, and play. It influences jobs, incomes, and opportunities for personal enterprise. Business has a significant effect on the standard of living and quality of life of Canadians, and on the environment in which they live and which future generations will inherit. Eventually, all students will encounter the world of business, whether they work in cities, towns, or in rural areas. They must be prepared to engage in business activity with confidence and competence. Young people need to understand how business functions, its role in our society, the opportunities it generates, the skills it requires, and the impact it can have on their lives.
The Stamford Business Department provides opportunities for students to develop the knowledge, skills and competencies required in business.
