Established in 2000, Ontario genomics is a non-profit focused on stimulating, enabling and nurturing genomics innovation in the province of Ontario. We act as a catalyst for developing and applying genomic technologies across seven key sectors - agriculture, bioproducts, energy, forestry, health, mining, and water - to grow the province's knowledge-based economy and create jobs and social benefits for all Ontarians.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
