Fast Fact

The mission of COVE is to propel the ocean economy by providing high quality marine infrastructure and a place where a community of ocean enterprises can start, grow and prosper.

Situated on Halifax Harbour, NSCC is transitioning a former coast guard site into a vital resource for Nova Scotia’s ocean sector known as COVE or the Centre for Ocean Ventures & Entrepreneurship.

Once complete in April 2018, the centre will serve as a collaborative facility for applied ocean innovation. The mission of COVE partners like NSCC is to propel the ocean economy by providing high quality marine infrastructure and a place where a community of ocean enterprises can start, grow and prosper.

The facility, adjacent to NSCC’s Ivany campus, is coming to life thanks to a provincial and federal government investment of $19.7 million through the Post-Secondary Institutions Strategic Investment Fund.

“We are pleased to serve as the lead post-secondary education institution in developing COVE,” says NSCC President Don Bureaux. “Working with our partners, we are creating an environment to host high-quality marine infrastructure – a space where ocean enterprises can collaborate and help transform ideas into thriving operations.”

The space complements NSCC’s work in applied innovation, teaching and industry training in oceans technology and advanced manufacturing. NSCC will continue to play a lead role in this project through its collaborative approach and research capacity.
