Education & Training

We're home to several major research facilities and institutes of higher education. The latest addition - a 300,000 sq. ft. world-leading $112 million Centre for Engineering and Innovation is designed to promote creativity, collaboration, and an inventive spirit in addition to practical know-how. With several strategic initiatives linking higher education and workforce development, it's no wonder our area's post-secondary programs are internationally recognized as institutes of "hire" education.
