The third Entrepreneurship/Enterprise Education Symposium will be
held at Moncton's Hotel Beausejour Aug. 16 and 17.

Approximately 50 educators from across the Atlantic provinces
will take part in a series of workshops as well as panel and
round table discussions designed to identify profiles of
entrepreneurship skills for students in grades three, six, nine
and 12.

The theme of this year's symposium, organized by the New
Brunswick Department of Education, is "Confronting the Monster
Under the Bed."

The symposium is part of a joint entrepreneurship development
accord between the Atlantic Provinces Education Foundation
(APEF), representing the four Atlantic provincial departments of
education, and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA). A
total of four annual symposia are included in the five-year
agreement, with each province hosting one of them.

Presenting at the conference and lending their expertise as
facilitators for the various workshops and discussions will be
some of the region's leading entrepreneurship educators: Chris
Curtis and Jo-Anne Ackerboom-Leach from the Centre for
Entrepreneurship Education and Development, Nova Scotia
Department of Education and Culture; Terry Matthews, a professor
at the Miramichi campus of the New Brunswick Community College;
and, Claudette Charest-Chouinard, coordinator of francophone
entrepreneurship education with the APEF.
