The Centre for Advanced Computing
At the Centre for Advanced Computing, our goal is to be a catalyst for innovation in research. Our contributions support organizations in the advanced research community, communities that often include vulnerable groups such as, indigenous peoples and LGBTQ+ groups, to fulfill their research initiatives. In collaboration with our partner, Compute Ontario, the stories of these organizations are illustrated in our newest video project.
