Building Capacity in International Engagement
The Balsillie School of International Affairs (BSIA) is situated within The CIGI Campus. The facility is located in the heart of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada — a multicultural city with a tradition of creative and dynamic thinking. The Campus is an “incubator of ideas” and cultivates interdisciplinary learning focused on global issues.
Toronto-based Kuwabara Payne McKenna Blumberg Architects designed the campus, which is located directly beside The Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI).
The CIGI Campus is a 45-minute drive from Toronto's Pearson International Airport, or 15 minutes from the Region of Waterloo International Airport. It is home to academic and research programs that are partnerships between CIGI and other institutions, including the BSIA, founded in 2007.
This $69-million facility received federal and provincial funding totalling $50 million through the Knowledge Infrastructure Program and Ontario’s 2009 budget. The land for the CIGI Campus was donated by the City of Waterloo through a 99-year lease.
