The Network is led entirely by volunteers for the benefit of its members and of the Canadian innovation & research landscape. The support of its sponsors and partners is critical for success of this national initiative.

Network Host & Partner

The Network Host is an institution that supports the network for a five year term. The University of Toronto Scarborough is the inaugural Network host for the CBSN (2022 - 2027).
Alignment of CBSN values and mission with UTSC's strategic plan (Inspiring Inclusive Excellence) yields reciprocal benefits for both partners.


Partners work with CBSN to co-create and administer programs that benefit CBSN members and Canadian research & innovation across sectors.
