Waterfront Toronto has been doing some amazing things to revitalize our waterfront, all the way from Mimico to Port Union. With the updated Martin Goodman Trail and the beautiful view of the lake that naturally comes with it, Toronto’s lakefront property is also adding amenities that will make people want to come down and visit Lake Ontario.
The new campus is designed to have many different types of learning spaces, from technologically advanced labs and classrooms to the rooftop terrace and a beautiful park. Students are encouraged to use all of the space available to really take advantage of the purposeful design of the building.
George Brown’s waterfront campus was built for the faculty of health sciences, and is home to the School of Dental Health, School of Health and Wellness, School of Health Services Management, and the Sally Horsfall Eaton School of Nursing. They have placed huge emphasis on application in the evolving curriculum and this can be seen with the implementation of the WAVE (Wellness, Applied Research, and Visionary Education) program. The WAVE program is implemented through the Dental Clinic, the Hearing Clinic, Fitness Studios, Active Living, and Health Promotion, which students use to get practical training in their respective fields.
