The uOttawa Kanata North Campus is located in Canada's largest technology park

We have two campus locations in Kanata North, accounting for over 8,000 sq. ft. of space, including the first academic-industry research lab in the tech park, the Smart Connected Vehicle Innovation Centre.

The tech park is a hub for innovation and technological advancement. Bringing together over 540 companies and 33,000 workers, it serves as a destination for leading technology companies, startups and academic institutions, fostering collaboration and driving cutting-edge development in telecommunications, software development, cybersecurity, life sciences, semiconductor technologies and more!


We are a founding academic and anchor partner in Hub350

The University of Ottawa joined Hub350 as a founding anchor partner in 2021. Hub 350 is a state-of-the-art global technology centre in Canada’s largest technology park, located just minutes from uOttawa’s Kanata North campus. Home of the original Mitel Networks, Hub350 serves as a gateway to a world-class tech, finance and academic research ecosystem that is thriving in Kanata North. Since being established, Hub350 has been powered by the Kanata North Business Association (KNBA).
