Algonquin College DARE District
Ottawa, Ontario
Algonquin College, Building C
The DARE (Discovery, Applied Research, and Entrepreneurship) District includes the College’s new library and learning centre, an Indigenous Commons, makerspaces that will allow students to get their hands on the latest technology, a Cybersecurity Centre, and more. It will be home to new training and test facilities for high-demand job sectors, a multimedia production facility, expanded Applied Research and Innovation programs, and an Institute for Indigenization, which will focus on how to include and embed Indigenous knowledge throughout the College organization, including areas like entrepreneurship. LEED Gold Candidate.

The DARE District will serve as a multidisciplinary space for faculty, researchers, businesses and – most importantly – Algonquin’s students. From an Energy Research Lab to a Data Analytics Centre, it will be a catalyst for cutting-edge education.

The project is a joint venture with Diamond Schmitt Architects.
