Initiatives.

Hub350 is set to become the heart of the Kanata North technology park, bringing together industry, academic and finance partners to co-locate and collaborate. Anchor partners at Hub350 include TELUS, RBC, Salesforce, and world leading post-secondary institutions including University of Ottawa, Carleton University, Algonquin College and Queen’s University. Hub350 will enable access to partnerships that form the foundational elements of growing local businesses, and Ottawa’s economy. Our initiatives aim to support the growth and success of our partners and member companies within Canada’s largest technology hub.

As a leading North American tech zone, Kanata North brings people, businesses and events to the nation’s capital. From career fairs to hackathons, from major conferences to global networking opportunities, Hub350 will help create and facilitate world-class events.

In fact, the Kanata Business Association has just announced a strategic partnership with Ottawa Tourism which will see the city’s leading destination marketer have a significant presence within Hub350, lending their experience and expertise to local industry leaders seeking to bring dynamic, first-rate events to the area.

We have lots of exciting news to come in this space and an events calendar coming soon – visit our event calendar here.

At the heart of Hub350, is the TELUS 5G Innovation Zone, powered by Canada’s fastest mobile network. 5G represents one of the most significant new advances in communications technologies to date, making the 5G Innovation Zone ideal for conceptualizing, developing, testing, and now, commercializing 5G.

The 5G Innovation Zone will allow Ottawa businesses to test their products for real-world applications on a 5G network, working alongside the 500+ businesses in the park.

Named the #1 hospital in Ottawa by Newsweek Magazine 2021 and a top employer in Canada by Forbes Magazines, Queensway Carleton Hospital is a rapidly growing health care institution serving some 500,000 people each year in Ottawa’s west end.

The hospital is supported by the QCH Foundation, which partners with inspired members of the community and committed hospital staff to implement a wide variety of fundraising initiatives. Together, they raise critically needed funds so that the hospital can continue to offer exceptional community care.

QCH has developed an agile and collaborative culture that enables it to respond rapidly with advanced programs which reinvent models of patient care while being actively engaged in the community, and it is a perfect Health and Wellness Partner for the Kanata North Business Association and Hub350.

This partnership will see the opening of the Queensway Carleton Hospital Lounge, a space for regular forums, mental and physical health education sessions, and wellness resources for the 500+ companies and 33,000+ employees and their families who are connected to the technology park.

Not only does it present an invaluable opportunity for QCH to extend its work outside of hospital walls, but it ensures that our Hub350 member organizations can prioritize the health and wellness of their #1 asset – their employees.

Facilitated by Hub350, this is a unique series of leadership programs for knowledge transfer, industry best practice sharing and senior executive collaboration.
