Carleton University has supported VV with a huge array of facilities right from the beginning of Virtual Ventures in 1994. In addition to all of the science and computer labs, we also receive access to classrooms, lecture theatres, board rooms, lobbies, parking facilities, a fast internet connection, and more. Participants at Virtual Ventures never have to share computers, and often have multiple computers, each one equipped with professional-grade software, something that has only been possible due to Carleton’s tremendous dedication to our program!


In partnership with Shopify, we deliver Linked>, a digital-skills based program hosted weekly at BGC (formerly Boys and Girls Club) of Ottawa locations. Shopify also supports BGC youth to attend Virtual Ventures summer camps.


NSERC Promoscience supports our Girls Outreach, Indigenous InSTEM and At-Risk youth programs.
