T
he numerous ac-
complishments of
Canadian design-
er Bruce Mau are
something to be
marveled at. As an
entrepreneur he
founded Bruce Mau Design in 1985.
As an author he co-wrote the huge-
ly popular S,M,L,XL with Rem Kool-
haus and even served as creative dir-
ectorforI.D.Magazineintheearly90s.
Still,theseachievementsonlytellhalf
thestoryofthisinnovativedesigner.
His origins are about as hum-
ble as it gets. Hailing from north-
ern Ontario, Mau had no con-
tact with the creative world in his
formative years. It wasn’t until
he got into OCAD that he came
across any like-minded individ-
uals.“Itwas mind-blowing to meet
other people like me,” Mau recalls.
“Other people who want to be art-
ists, who want to be creative. They

didn’t want to kill animals, they
wanted to photograph them.”
Though Mau’s time at OCAD was
one of his first brushes with third-
level education, it wasn’t to be his
last. Once established, Mau was
approached by George Brown Col-
lege to create a new kind of design
course. It was here that Institute
Without Boundaries was founded,
the revolutionary design program
that still runs today.

pose-driven, experience-based,

program,” Mau explains. “I didn’t
want it to focus on content. Four
years later the content is irrelevant
anyway, especially today. The re-
al content is experience. So, we de-
signed an experience program. One
wherepeoplewouldspend12months
in the studio doing a project as a
team. It wasn’t in a classroom, there
werenoclassesperse.But,whenyou
have a real purpose, on a very public
stage, then you will break the box to
learn—becauseyou’reontheline.”
The public stage in that inaugur-
al InstituteWithout Boundaries pro-
gram was a real space for Massive
Change, the organization that Mau
founded on the principles of opti-
mism, beauty, and innovation. Since
thentheMassiveChangephilosophy
— which even comes with its own
43-point manifesto — has attracted
colossalclientssuchasCoca-Colaand
Walt Disney. Currently, the organiz-
ation’s principles can be explored at
the Work onWhatYou Love exhibit in
thePhiladelphiaMuseumofArtuntil
April of this year.After that, Mau in-
tendstocontinuespreadingtheMas-
sive Change method to other pro-
gressiveenterpriserssuchashimself.
  According to Mau, the key to
all this success is being oblivious
to fear. “It’s not like I’m courage-
ous, I just don’t know the dangers.
Entrepreneurs aren’t more cour-
ageous than other people, they’re
just not aware of the risks.”
The key to being a successful de-
signer on the other hand is em-
pathy. “You need to be able to ex-
perience someone else’s pain,
understand it, and then translate
it into opportunity,” says Mau. “In
the end the designer is The Lorax,

vocate for the citizen,for the user.”

F
or most, becoming an entre-
preneur may seem like an un-
attainable goal, a pipe dream
even. These days, however,
starting your own business is
wellwithin the reach of many
peoplegiventherightingredients.
Emily Wight, founder of Astarté Fresh Yo-
gurt Bar, located in downtown Toronto’s
underground PATH network, is a prime ex-
ample. Tired of the slow-moving corporate
world,Wight startedAstarté to gain more cre-
ativefreedomandtheabilitytochangethings
whenshesawfit.Thischoicecamewithsome
challenges, but ones that were eventually
overcome by the right levels of enthusiasm.
“If you’re really passionate about the idea
or the business thatyou’re going to start,then
it’s a lot easier to succeed,” Wight explains.
“I think it’s just about making sure that
your dream and passion connects with real-
ity. Couple that with some due diligence and
proper planning and it’s actually a lot of fun.”
ThoughWight’s eagerness clearly played a
huge part in her success, she’s also gained a
lot of help from Futurpreneur Canada, who
have provided funding and guidance along
the way. “Having someone you’re account-
able to, so you can show progress or check in
with, is a really important part,” says Wight.
“I think you can stay in limbo for a long time
with a good idea, until you actually execute
it. Also, when you’re on your own, you on-
ly have your opinion, and I think it’s really
helpful to bounce ideas off of other people.”
As Astarté turns three, Wight has now
firmly established herself as a successful
entrepreneur, which allows for a different
outlook on her business. “For me it doesn’t
even feel like a job anymore,” says Wight. “I
wake up and I’m energized and excited about
what I’ve got going on.”

“I think you can stay in

actually execute it.”
Are you at a college or university and
want to switch?
Want to go to college and then to
university, or vice-versa?
Are you in high school and thinking
about your post-secondary journey?
In today’s competitive workforce,
students view multiple credentials
and diverse experiences with a
combination of hands on work and
theoretical practice as providing
them with a leading edge.
Every year more than 55,000 stu-
dents transfer among post-secondary
institutions in the province of Ontario,
choosing to combine their college and
university studies to get more out of
their education and to better prepare
themselves for the job market.
With so many students exploring
their options and planning ahead,
ONTransfer.ca was created to
respond to their needs. The site is
free, and helps students learn how to
transfer their courses and programs
among all of Ontario’s 45 publicly
assisted colleges and universities.
As the institutions continue to
create partnerships and make their
information available to students
through the site, students can
expect a better education, a more
seamless transfer experience, and
a post-secondary system better
equipped to serve their needs in
preparing for today’s challenges.

T
oday’s economic landscape is
shifting. Every industry is ex-
periencing a digital transform-
ation, and basic tech skills are
more in demand than ever.
With this change in mind, it is imperative
forindividualsandbusinessestobeadaptive
and keep up to datewithwhat is trending in
business,marketing,design,andtech.
Progressive tech schools are providing in-
dividualsandbusinesseswiththeopportun-
ity to do just that.These schools are utilizing
evening courses andworkshops in business,
marketing,design,andtechnologyinToron-
to andVancouver especially — taught by in-
dustry experts who bring real-world experi-
ences to each class. Courses and workshops
are project based — meaning students come
out of the experience with something to
showcasetheirnewlyfoundskills.
It’s important to note that being digitally
savvy goes far beyond technical courses
like web development. Having digital skills,
whetheritbeSEOandanalytics,socialmedia,
userexperiencedesign,Photoshop,orproduct
management, increases one’s workplace
contribution and value as an employee.
BrainStation’s Founder, Jason Field explains,
“If you can comprehend and communicate
whatisgoingontechnically,notonlywillyou
add morevalue toyour organization,youwill

So whether it be through a course or
workshop, building your digital skills en-
ables one to invest in their personal and
professional development.

n a world plagued by strife
and instability, the demand
for public and private secur-
ityservicesaregrowingexpo-
nentially.Whether you want
to serve your community or
country, protect the public, or help
people in need — policing and pro-
tection is a respected profession
with serious responsibilities. If you
are looking for more than just a job
and want to make a real difference
in your community, you could con-
sider a career in police services, in-
vestigation,or private security. 
Security has developed along-
side police services to the point
where many skills are inter-
changeable. Traditional policing
has evolved to include immigra-
tion, forensics, and investigative
skills. Recent reports calling for
the modernizing of police servi-
ces  could create a shift towards
outsourcing resources which may
include those that could be  cov-
ered by protection, security, and
investigation entities. Challen-
ging and rewarding careers can be
found within the civil and crimin-
al justice systems such as: correc-
tional services (community and
institutional), Canada border ser-
vice agencies, immigration or-
ganizations, and government or-
ganizations. Other opportunities
also exist in residential, commer-
cial, and industrial security agen-
cies; airport security; the Can-
adian Forces; hotels,casinos,retail
establishments; or, within the fu-
ture restructure of urban policing. 
Small class sizes and state-of-
the-art facilities combined with
professors who possess industry
experience help students gradu-
ate with a range of practical, prob-
lem-solving, and administrative
skills to fill roles across the ex-
panse of criminal justice careers.
New technologies have brought
state-of-the-art simulators in-
to the classroom creating life-like
situations to help students test and
practice their skills before gradua-
tion. Students pursuing careers in
policing could be taught in driving
simulatorswhere instructors chal-
lenge them by programming in ob-
stacles as students drive. Conflict
resolution simulators portray on-
screen characters — uncooperative
or in the grip of a mental health
crisis to test student negotiation
and resolution skills.
For graduates who want to move
into a career in criminal justice,
educational institutions that offer
industry partnerships that provide
employment opportunities are a
critical next step. Students should
also look for opportunities where
entry-level positions can move
into specialized or niche areas
such as analysis, investigations, or
risk management. 
Prep courses are available to help
graduates prepare to write the min-
istry exams which are mandatory
for private investigators and secur-
ityguardsinOntario.

gram that is right for you!

Still,theseachievementsonlytellhalf thestoryofthisinnovativedesigner. His origins are about as hum- ble as it gets. Hailing from north- ern Ontario, Mau had no con- tact with the creative world in his formative years. It wasn’t until he got into OCAD that he came across any like-minded individ- uals.“Itwas mind-blowing to meet other people like me,” Mau recalls. “Other people who want to be art- ists, who want to be creative.

Once established, Mau was approached by George Brown Col- lege to create a new kind of design course. It was here that Institute Without Boundaries was founded, the revolutionary design program that still runs today.  “I really wanted to make a pur- pose-driven, experience-based, Publisher: Jessica Papp Business Developer: Jessica Samson-Doel Managing Director: Martin Kocandrle Production Director: Carlo Ammendolia Lead Designer: Matthew Senra Contributors: Trilby Goouch, Daryl Keating, Marlene Raasok, Susan Typert Cover Photo: Dave Gillespie Photo credits: All images are from Getty Images unless otherwise accredited.

Four years later the content is irrelevant anyway, especially today. The re- al content is experience. So, we de- signed an experience program.

It wasn’t in a classroom, there werenoclassesperse.But,whenyou have a real purpose, on a very public stage, then you will break the box to learn—becauseyou’reontheline.” The public stage in that inaugur- al InstituteWithout Boundaries pro- gram was a real space for Massive Change, the organization that Mau founded on the principles of opti- mism, beauty, and innovation. Since thentheMassiveChangephilosophy — which even comes with its own 43-point manifesto — has attracted colossalclientssuchasCoca-Colaand Walt Disney.

Entrepreneurs aren’t more cour- ageous than other people, they’re just not aware of the risks.” The key to being a successful de- signer on the other hand is em- pathy. “You need to be able to ex- perience someone else’s pain, understand it, and then translate it into opportunity,” says Mau. “In the end the designer is The Lorax, wespeakforthetrees.We’rethead- vocate for the citizen,for the user.” Inordertoclimbtheladdertosuc- cess, like Mau did, it seems an equal measureofbothisnecessary.

These days, however, starting your own business is wellwithin the reach of many peoplegiventherightingredients. Emily Wight, founder of Astarté Fresh Yo- gurt Bar, located in downtown Toronto’s underground PATH network, is a prime ex- ample. Tired of the slow-moving corporate world,Wight startedAstarté to gain more cre- ativefreedomandtheabilitytochangethings whenshesawfit.Thischoicecamewithsome challenges, but ones that were eventually overcome by the right levels of enthusiasm. “If you’re really passionate about the idea or the business thatyou’re going to start,then it’s a lot easier to succeed,” Wight explains. “I think it’s just about making sure that your dream and passion connects with real- ity. Couple that with some due diligence and proper planning and it’s actually a lot of fun.” ThoughWight’s eagerness clearly played a huge part in her success, she’s also gained a lot of help from Futurpreneur Canada, who have provided funding and guidance along the way. “Having someone you’re account- able to, so you can show progress or check in with, is a really important part,” says Wight. “I think you can stay in limbo for a long time with a good idea, until you actually execute it. Also, when you’re on your own, you on- ly have your opinion, and I think it’s really helpful to bounce ideas off of other people.” As Astarté turns three, Wight has now firmly established herself as a successful entrepreneur, which allows for a different outlook on her business. “For me it doesn’t even feel like a job anymore,” says Wight. “I wake up and I’m energized and excited about what I’ve got going on.” Daryl Keating HowtheRightCombination ofIngredientsCanLeadtoa SuccessfulBusiness “I think you can stay in limbo for a long time with a good idea, until you actually execute it.” Are you at a college or university and want to switch? Want to go to college and then to university, or vice-versa? Are you in high school and thinking about your post-secondary journey? In today’s competitive workforce, students view multiple credentials and diverse experiences with a combination of hands on work and theoretical practice as providing them with a leading edge. Every year more than 55,000 stu- dents transfer among post-secondary institutions in the province of Ontario, choosing to combine their college and university studies to get more out of their education and to better prepare themselves for the job market. With so many students exploring their options and planning ahead, ONTransfer.ca was created to respond to their needs. The site is free, and helps students learn how to transfer their courses and programs among all of Ontario’s 45 publicly assisted colleges and universities. As the institutions continue to create partnerships and make their information available to students through the site, students can expect a better education, a more seamless transfer experience, and a post-secondary system better equipped to serve their needs in preparing for today’s challenges.

If you are looking for more than just a job and want to make a real difference in your community, you could con- sider a career in police services, in- vestigation,or private security.  Security has developed along- side police services to the point where many skills are inter- changeable. Traditional policing has evolved to include immigra- tion, forensics, and investigative skills. Recent reports calling for the modernizing of police servi- ces  could create a shift towards outsourcing resources which may include those that could be  cov- ered by protection, security, and investigation entities. Challen- ging and rewarding careers can be found within the civil and crimin- al justice systems such as: correc- tional services (community and institutional), Canada border ser- vice agencies, immigration or- ganizations, and government or- ganizations. Other opportunities also exist in residential, commer- cial, and industrial security agen- cies; airport security; the Can- adian Forces; hotels,casinos,retail establishments; or, within the fu- ture restructure of urban policing.  Small class sizes and state-of- the-art facilities combined with professors who possess industry experience help students gradu- ate with a range of practical, prob- lem-solving, and administrative skills to fill roles across the ex- panse of criminal justice careers. New technologies have brought state-of-the-art simulators in- to the classroom creating life-like situations to help students test and practice their skills before gradua- tion. Students pursuing careers in policing could be taught in driving simulatorswhere instructors chal- lenge them by programming in ob- stacles as students drive. Conflict resolution simulators portray on- screen characters — uncooperative or in the grip of a mental health crisis to test student negotiation and resolution skills. For graduates who want to move into a career in criminal justice, educational institutions that offer industry partnerships that provide employment opportunities are a critical next step. Students should also look for opportunities where entry-level positions can move into specialized or niche areas such as analysis, investigations, or risk management.  Prep courses are available to help graduates prepare to write the min- istry exams which are mandatory for private investigators and secur- ityguardsinOntario.
