  • hear from Bank employees about the interesting work we do in our organization and jobs available; 
  • learn about counterfeiting and the Bank’s role in making our money; and
  • tour the Bank of Canada Museum and explore fun, hands-on, interactive exhibits that cover everything from how people’s expectations affect the health of an economy to how inflation targeting works (hint: you get to fly a rocket ship!)

Canada Science and Technology Museum

Ingenium is a vital link between science and society, and we take science engagement to the next level.  we do this by co-creating participatory experiences, acting as community hub and connectors, helping Canadians contribute to solving global challenges, and creating a collective impact which will extend far beyond our physical spaces.  One fun example?  Our new Nintendo game, which mixes science with play and has international reach!

We are Ingenium, and our institutions are the new Ingenium Centre and Canada’s museums of science and innovation:  the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum, the Canada Aviation and Space Museum, and the Canada Science and Technology Museum.  Ingenium is excited to welcome Indigenous students to take part in a fun-filled day of learning where they will have the opportunity to:

  • Participate in an important hands-on activity related to the Indigenous Sky Knowledge Symposium, co-creating material which will be used at the Symposium in September 2020. This activity will be lead by curator Dr. David Pantalony and Lindsey MacGregor, an Ingenium researcher and graduate student at uOttawa specializing in Education and Indigenous Studies.  
  • Enjoy a yummy pizza lunch!

Saint Paul University/La Cité Collégiale/Algonquin College

Saint Paul University is the founding college of the University of Ottawa, with which it has been federated since 1965. Proud of its rich heritage, over the years Saint Paul University (SPU) has evolved into an institution whose primary focus is on the multiple facets of the human experience. Not surprisingly, that priority is reflected in our current study programs: in addition to our founding disciplines—canon law, philosophy, and theology—we offer courses in social communication, social innovation, transformative leadership, supportive care in palliation, counselling and psychotherapy, public ethics, conflict studies, and human relations and spirituality.

Besides its academic programs, SPU offers a number of complementary services, including support and guidance to help students succeed academically and personally; access to symposiums, conferences and workshops with distinguished specialists in the areas of issues facing today’s society; a student residence; and a library with an outstanding collection of documents and books on a range of specialized subjects.
