Wednesday, November 14, 2018 - 2:45pm

OCAD University celebrated the opening of its new waterfront campus, OCAD U CO  ̶ the university’s new executive studio that uses creative problem-solving to drive innovation and change. Located at Daniel City of the Arts, the new facility is also the home of Imagination Catalyst entrepreneurship and commercialization hub, which supports companies committed to design-driven products and services.

President Sara Diamond welcomed special guests, Adam Vaughan, MP Spadina-Fort York and Chris Glover, MPP Spadina-Fort York. The Government of Canada, in partnership with the Government of Ontario, contributed $2.5 million towards this project under the Post-Secondary Institutions Strategic Investment Fund (SIF).

Under the leadership of Kevin Morris, Managing Director of OCAD U CO, the facility makes the deep creative design knowledge and capabilities of OCAD University available to industry leaders and their organizations.
