Province Investing in Science, Innovation Training and Research Facility for University of Windsor Students

Ontario is investing in a new science, research and innovation facility at the University of Windsor that will better equip students with the skills they need for the jobs of today and tomorrow.
The investment from the province and the federal government will allow the University of Windsor to better support its science students with a regional state-of-the-art research space. The facility will provide student-centred, hands-on training and cutting-edge research experience for the next generation of scientists. Site work is expected to start in February 2017.

“This once-in-a-generation investment by the Government of Canada is a historic down payment on the government’s vision to position Canada as a global centre for innovation. That means making Canada a world leader in turning ideas into solutions, science into technologies, skills into jobs and start-up companies into global successes. This investment will create conditions that are conducive to innovation and long-term growth, which will in turn keep the Canadian economy globally competitive.” — The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development
