PRINCE GEORGE - Emily Carr University of Art + Design (ECUAD) is moving into the recently opened Wood Innovation and Design Centre, bringing new programs to be created in partnership with the already announced University of Northern British Columbia wood engineering programs.

The establishment of the Emily Carr Centre for Design Innovation and Entrepreneurship and this partnership will turn WIDC into a wood-focused education hub. Emily Carr and UNBC are currently working together to create a lasting partnership that will provide complementary academic and community programs within WIDC.

The Emily Carr Centre for Design Innovation and Entrepreneurship will focus on art and design-based educational programs and applied research activities, as well as partnerships focused on design innovation and secondary manufacturing with wood and wood-based products.

Emily Carr has launched a consultation with the community and wood industry to determine exact programming to be offered. Its expected to be completed this spring and new programming are expected to start in the fall of 2016. ECUAD will offer some of its credit and non-credit programs starting this summer.

The WIDC is one of the tallest contemporary wood buildings in North America. The six-storey, 29.5-metre structure is a catalyst for future wood construction around the globe. It features a variety of B.C. wood materials ranging from Douglas-fir to engineered wood products.

Its also the home of the Media and Broadcast Centre for the 2015 Canada Winter Games being held in Prince George from Feb. 13 to March 1, 2015.

In addition to the two education facilities, the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations will be a long-term tenant in the building. With the ministrys teams located close by, there may be synergies between it and the engineering and design programs being introduced.

Another important mandate of the WIDC is to showcase B.C.s wood products and processes and expand the provinces international market share. Investors interested in the British Columbias forest sector will see first-hand the beauty of B.C.s forest products when meeting with the ministrys regional staff to discuss opportunities in the North.
