The Canaan School for Training and Development, situated at Riverview, is operated by the Salvation Army. It is the site of the former Endeavour Training Farm. The centre runs social programs funded by the Federal Government to assist disadvantaged and marginalised members of the community to re-enter the workforce and gain independence. In 2013, the school was closed due to a lack of funding.
The Canaan School for Training and Development is situated on 360 acres of farm land, consisting of a campground, animal nursery, a function hall, and accommodation facilities.
Canaan was the name of the original homestead on the property that became the Industrial School for Boys, Riverview. It was built in the late 1880s and restored in the 1990s.
