New Waterfront Campus receives federal funding

GBC's new Waterfront campus, currently in the design stage, has received $30M in federal funding, part of the recent federal infrastructure spending. These funds are in addition to the funds already committed by the Province of Ontario. The new campus will be a significant anchor for interprofessional health sciences education in the GTA health cluster. The campus will also feature applied research capacity--the George Brown College Health Sciences Inter-Professional Online Research and Technology Assessment Laboratory (I-PORTAL). I-PORTAL will establish a significant new capability for applied research and technology design, prototyping, development and commercialization in the context of interprofessional health care.
