In the news: Mohawk breaks ground

The Government of Canada announced a $20 million investment in the largest renewal of technology labs and classrooms in Mohawk’s 50-year history. The largest ever investment by the federal government will support construction and renovations totalling 120,000 square feet at the Fennell campus. The cornerstone of the project is a five-level Centre for Partnership and Innovation that will be the region’s first net zero energy institutional building. Enrolment in high demand technology programs is expected to grow by 1,000 students and applied research activity will increase 50 per cent.
