Rix Centre for Ocean Discoveries

The Rix Centre for Ocean Discoveries is a stand-out landmark on Canada’s west coast and the site of our Conference Centre. This striking facility, with its scalloped roof, combines flexible meeting space with an awe-inspiring ocean view. This building also houses research facilities, including an Environmental Integrity Lab with high-quality seawater; a Biotechnology Lab to support molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry and physiology; a Digital Imaging Facility with a confocal laser scanning microscope, a compound microscope with differential interference contrast optics, and other microscopes for larger specimens; two analytical equipment labs, a computer lab and office space.
