The Global Innovation Exchange (GIE) at Wilfrid Laurier University’s Waterloo campus is an integral part of Laurier’s Campus Master Plan. This $103-million signature project, announced in June 2011 and scheduled to be complete by 2014, will allow the university to meet the growing demand for enrolment in Laurier’s business and math programs, and expand the university’s ability to deliver integrated and engaged learning opportunities to students at the local and global levels.

As Laurier President and Vice-Chancellor said on June 20, 2011 at the announcement of the major investment by the provincial government in this iconic facility: “This major investment in Laurier is an investment in the prosperity of the region and the province and the tremendous potential of our students. Government support during Laurier’s centennial year recognizes our history of academic excellence and innovation and fosters our purposeful growth into Laurier’s next century.”

Housing Laurier’s School of Business and Economics together with the Department of Mathematics in the GIE will enhance the synergies between Laurier’s business and applied and financial math programs and serve as an iconic representation of the leadership role Laurier plays in Canadian business and Waterloo’s technology industry.

For detailed information about the GIE facility, please view the fact sheet and renderings housed on this website. Our frequently asked questions page, as well as this website, will be updated regularly as new information becomes available.
