MaRS connects the communities of science, business and capital and fosters collaboration among them.
This happens physically through location of research labs, companies of all sizes, business advisors, investors and professional services within the MaRS Centre and more broadly through hands-on advisory services, entrepreneurial programming, our structured networks and expanding electronic community.
Located in Toronto’s Discovery District -- two square kilometres that have been designated as the city’s centre of innovation – the MaRS Centre is the gateway to Canada’s largest concentration of scientific research, anchored by major teaching hospitals, the University of Toronto and more than two dozen affiliated research institutes. The Centre is also close to the Bay Street financial district, provincial legislature, key government organizations, arts and cultural attractions.
Phase I of the MaRS Centre opened in September 2005. Construction of Phase II – up to 750,000 square feet began in late 2007 and is expected to be complete in 2010.
