Centre of Technology and Innovation
The Centre of Technology and Innovation (CTI) is a ground-breaking initiative that will combine Humber’s expertise in polytechnic entrepreneur training, advanced manufacturing and new enterprise development with a state-of-the-art, 70,000-square-foot facility.
The CTI building will be located at the North Campus between the Learning Resource Commons and the University of Guelph-Humber, in what is currently parking lot 3A. The first phase of construction, which is expected to be complete by April 2018, is projected to generate 461 jobs.
The Centre, envisioned as an idea accelerator, will prepare students with the complex, highly marketable skill sets needed for careers in high-tech industries. In particular, the CTI will focus on programs that support the development of sustainable building practices and human-centred, technology-enabled solutions for our modern society.
Students will hone their creativity and innovation capabilities by working closely with industry and community partners on industry-relevant technical problems and helping to commercialize new products. Having worked in collaboration with the School of Applied Technology, the School of Media Studies and Information Technology, and Humber Research, CTI graduates will help Canadian companies compete in a global marketplace by producing quality products faster and more efficiently.
Construction of the CTI has been made possible through a generous donation from the Barrett Family Foundation as well as funding from the federal government’s Post-Secondary Institutions Strategic Investment Fund.

Building F has received 38,000 square feet (3,500 m2) of extra floor space with a two-storey addition directly above the existing building at Humber’s North Campus. The addition houses new central classroom spaces and a science suite that serves a variety of programs in the schools of Hospitality, Recreation and Tourism, Liberal Arts & Sciences and Health Sciences programs.
The project, which began in May, 2014, used a phased, fast-tracked approach and was completed in May, 2015. Level 1 and 2 of Building F remained occupied during the 2014-2015 school year.
