Ontario's Science North to develop new Guangzhou science centre
POSTED 12 Oct 2017 . BY Tom Anstey
One of Canada’s largest science centres has signed a deal with Chinese company Grandview Enterprise to establish a major new science centre in the city of Guangzhou.

Science North – an interactive science museum in Greater Sudbury, Ontario – opened in 1984 and is Northern Ontario's most popular tourist attraction.

The new relationship, marked by the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), will leverage Science North's expertise in science centre operations, science education, commerce, professional services and talent training to aid in the creation of the new facility.

"The collaboration with Grandview Enterprises will benefit both our organisations as we share our knowledge and expertise in operating a science centre as well as in science communication to the public,” said Science North CEO, Guy Labine.

“Not only does the partnership help Science North expand on its international external consulting, but it also demonstrates that Science North is beginning to become a global voice on the topics of science, education, tourism and culture."

The MoU was signed in Guangzhou during the International Shopping Festival, which had the theme “creating a world-class tourist city”. Ontario's international trade minister Michael Chan was on-hand for the signing.

"The MoU marks the start of an excellent partnership,” he said. “Science North's expertise in science centre development is an example of how Ontario and China are working together to promote tourism products to meet the demand of Chinese consumers, while also strengthening the ties that connect our jurisdictions through tourism and trade."

The science centre is not the only attraction development for Grandview. Last year, in collaboration with Wanda, it opened a theatre and Imax cinema in the city. Plans are also underway for a Nature Museum, Rainforest Ecological Museum and a Cantonese Culture Street, with each project aiming to “enrich people's spiritual and cultural life” in the city.
