Community impact

The prosperity of Canadians relies on the ability of the country to attract and retain talented people, boost innovation and build a sustainable economy.

As a result of the investments under the Post-Secondary Institutions Strategic Investment Fund, students, professors and researchers will work in state-of-the-art facilities that will support the country's best research. They will collaborate in specially designed spaces that encourage lifelong learning and skills training. They will work in close proximity with partners to turn discoveries into products and services; and their discoveries will plant the seeds for the next generation of innovators. See the positive impacts in communities across Canada:

We learn so much more when we're able to try the things we're learning in class and then carry them through the lab. This new research space will offer even more opportunities, not only to put theory into practice, but to work alongside our professors.

We learn so much more when we're able to get out and try the things we're learning in class and then carry them through the lab. This new research space will offer even more opportunities, not only to put theory into practice, but to work alongside our professors which is the most valuable learning experience of all.

An investment in Sexton Campus infrastructure isn't just an investment in a building; it's a human investment. So it's an investment in the innovators, the designers, the engineers, the architects, and the planners.

With the new Brock LINC, students will be able to have more experiences, because the resources will be endless and innovation will grow immensely. Students will be able to connect with the Niagara community and even with the globe.

This funding will allow for the renewal of a number of laboratory facilities in the Biological Sciences Building. These changes will enable professors to teach a wider variety of laboratory skills and topics, helping students be better prepared for conducting and interpreting science in the future.
