- The NOHFC is investing $701,000 in the City of Greater Sudbury for further study to plan for a proposed school of architecture.
- A 2008 feasibility study concluded that there is a significant shortage of seats in Canadian architecture schools. In addition, it outlined that construction of a new 75,000-square foot school would cost approximately $35 million.
“A new school of architecture would provide a very important boost to Sudbury's economy, help revitalize the downtown core and attract hundreds of specialized students to our community.”
“The establishment of a made-in-the North school of architecture would support youth and talent retention and would encourage students to integrate northern products and thinking into their designs.”
