MaRS Discovery District: North America’s largest urban innovation hub

MaRS brings together the innovation community to grow the economy and make an impact. A launchpad for startups, a platform for researchers and a home to innovators.

MaRS supports over 1,200 Canadian science and tech companies that are tackling some of society’s greatest challenges, providing them with tailored resources at every stage of their growth, from startup to scale-up. We focus on the four sectors — cleantech, health, fintech and enterprise software — where the potential is greatest to build high-impact companies that strengthen the economy.

Occupying 1.5 million square feet in downtown Toronto, MaRS is a diverse community of more than 120 tenants, including research labs and global tech companies, each selected to create a community that is collaborating on real solutions to important problems. The work carried out by the innovators in our community is making innovation mean something again. For example, it helps streamline th healthcare system, reduce the effects of climate change, unlock new cures for disease, envision the jobs of the future, improve mobility in crowded cities, and provide food and clean water for a growing population.
