Supporting Growth and Enhancing Student Experience

The expansion of the Canadian Food and Wine Institute at the Niagara-on-the-Lake Campus supports Niagara College’s position as Canada’s premier college for food and fermentation sciences and will help meet growing demand for its culinary, wine and brewery programs. The 13,000 square-foot one-floor addition will be constructed on the east side of the existing CFWI building and will include an expanded baking and pastry lab, quantitative lab, qualitative lab and central stores. Renovations to the existing stores area will complete a culinary, butchery and charcuterie lab. Construction began in October, 2015 and completion is scheduled for January, 2017.

The expansion of the Canadian Food and Wine Institute is part of a major campus redevelopment that also includes the construction of the Walker Advanced Manufacturing Centre at the Welland Campus, as well as other new and renovated spaces at the Welland and Niagara-on-the-Lake Campuses designed to support growth, enhance the student experience and expand Niagara College’s research and innovation capabilities.
