More than 130 participants gathered at an Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) partnering forum held Nov. 23 at Communitech in Waterloo to launch the second round of OCE's AdvancingEducation program. Participants included educators, administrators and companies with ideas to improve Ontario's public education system.

Supported by OCE's AdvancingEducation program, the Queen's University Faculty of Law and Ametros Learning are partnering to develop an intelligent simulation platform to help students acquire the professional knowledge needed to succeed in their careers.

OCE has forged exciting new partnerships that will help applicants to its GlobalStart Voucher program enter Asian markets. The GlobalStart Voucher program is intended to support youth-led start-ups to access international markets.

All those interested in the work of OCE can now easily find information about the many hundreds of projects we support in 75 communities across Ontario. Also now available are profiles and the latest news for many of the companies we support.
