Concordia SHIFT Centre opens flexible workspace for university, broader community


Concordia University recently opened the SHIFT Centre for Social Transformation, where Concordia faculty, students, and staff and members of the community can co-work in downtown Montréal. The space includes workstations, rooms for individual or collaborative work sessions, a kitchen, and an open space area. “We have been thrilled to see that the space has been a catalyst for both intentional and non-intentional collaborations,” says Susan Edey, interim senior director of community engagement and social impact at Concordia. The space was originally supported by a $10M gift to the university’s fundraising campaign in 2019 from the Amelia & Lino Saputo Foundation and the Mirella & Lino Saputo Foundation.
