UWaterloo proposes plans for innovative health facility in Kitchener

November 2, 2020

The University of Waterloo, in partnership with the city of Kitchener, has proposed a new 90,000 square foot innovation health facility. The facility, to be located in a repurposed UWaterloo-owned building on its Health Sciences Campus, would cost approximately $35M to complete and would focus on solving health challenges through technology and innovation. The proposed facility would house UWaterloo’s Velocity incubator program and a multi-use biosafety, clinical, instrumentation, product development, and wet lab space. It will also house some of UWaterloo’s health-related, interdisciplinary research, as well as the Waterloo Region Small Business Centre. CBC (ON)
