Vector is surrounded by a vibrant AI ecosystem in Toronto and across Canada. We are located in the Toronto-Waterloo Innovation Corridor, which employs more than 200,000 tech workers, second only to Silicon Valley within North America. We are also surrounded by leading research institutions and hospitals, as well as hundreds of AI-enabled start-up companies. Specifically, Vector lives in the West Tower of the MaRS Centre. MaRS is home to entrepreneurs, start-ups, and venture capital firms. Companies sharing the space include Autodesk Research, Borealis AI, JLABS@Toronto, and Layer 6 AI.
Vector is one of three major AI research centres included in the Government of Canada’s Pan-Canadian AI Strategy – others include the Alberta Machine Intelligence Institute (Amii) in Edmonton and Institut québécois d’intelligence artificielle (Mila) in Montreal.
