Federal government partners with Olds College to establish the Canadian Apparel Innovation Centre in Calgary

Posted


The Honourable Michelle Rempel, Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification, announced $2,986,500 to support the Olds College Apparel Innovation Centre in Calgary.

Federal support will enable the College, in collaboration with Alberta Garment Manufacturing Ltd., to establish Western Canada’s first open-access apparel research and development facility. Once completed, Canadian-based companies and entrepreneurs will have access to a full suite of product testing and development equipment, as well as research services to create advanced textile-based products such as fire and chemical resistant safety gear for the energy, mining and manufacturing industries.

This industry-focused facility complements the Fashion Marketing and Canadian Apparel Technology programs offered at the College’s Fashion Institute by providing opportunities for fashion students to obtain necessary education and hands-on experience from market-driven collaboration projects.
