JA Central Ontario’s School Year in Review

Looking back on the past 12 months of sparking the entrepreneurial spirit in Ontario students.


Thanks to invaluable support from our partners, 31,918 students across Central Ontario benefited from a free JA program this school year.

Our students received unique learning experiences and developed critical skills to help them build a prosperous future

Although the second half of the school year came during unprecedented times, we're very proud of how quickly we adapted to the environment by transitioning our programs and events in to interactive, virtual delivery models so students could continuing learning.

With your help, we continued to be resilient and innovative and we're excited about the possibilities this new digital world will provide our students!
