UNB breaks ground on new health, social innovation centre


The University of New Brunswick has broken ground on the new Health and Social Innovation Centre (HSIC). The HSIC will bring together academic, public, and private-sector health research and support the education of the health workforce. The centre’s design will meet green building standards and aim for LEED certification. The building will be located near health partners such as Dalhousie Medicine New Brunswick, New Brunswick Community College Allied Health, and the Saint John Regional Hospital; UNB says that the co-location of the HSIC is unique in Atlantic Canada and will support collaboration.
