The project received $7.96 million from the Government of Canada, $1.54 million from the Province of Ontario, $5 million from the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation, $1 million from FedNor, $1 million from the City of Thunder Bay, $6.56 million in capital funding from Lakehead University and $855,783 in equipment funding also from Lakhead.
It cost $26.2 million to design, construct and equip the high tech building.
