The story behind Hub350.

The Kanata North Technology hub has long been recognized as a hotbed of technology innovation since it’s beginning in 1972. It is the birthplace of game-changing companies such as Mitel, You.i TV and Saba Software, and more.

Today, telecommunications pioneers such as Cienna, Ericsson, Mitel and Nokia employ thousands directly in the park and as a result Kanata North leads in Connected and Autonomous Vehicles, Artificial Intelligence, Cyber Security, and Internet-of-Things, anchored by the presence of the BlackBerry QNX Autonomous Vehicle Innovation Centre.


The Hub350 space, located in Mitel’s former headquarters at 350 Legget Drive in Kanata, serves as a meeting place for industry leaders, academia and finance professionals to collaborate on projects – offering KNBA member companies unparalleled access to the connections and resources that the tech park offers.

The 12,000-square-foot “living lab” features open-concept meeting rooms as well as smaller private offices, lounges, booths, seating areas and auditoriums with stadium-style seating where founders can pitch their businesses to potential investors.

In addition, it houses a full-service media studio where companies and individuals can produce and broadcast stories and promotional materials.

Hub350 aims to create a connected innovation community & “world class 5G hub” to further position the Kanata North Technology Park as a global competitor for talent, ideas, and investment. Hub350 is a place for everyone and is now open to the public.

Hub350 is a place where everyone and anyone can co-work in the Kanata North tech park, putting you in the centre of technological innovation and advancement.
