The latest G8 legacy facility, established through a partnership between the Town of Huntsville and the University of Waterloo, in co-operation with the federal government, is a research and learning facility for environmental and ecological sustainability. It will support the work of researchers in the Centre for Ecosystem Resilience and Adaption, as well as host other University of Waterloo activities such as training programs, conferences and workshops.

Looking for an idea place for a field course, retreat, quiet research centre, or place to hold a small conference - then the Waterloo Summit Centre for the Environment is for you.
The Waterloo Summit Centre for the Environment (Centre), located in Huntsville, Ontario, is as an extension of the University of Waterloo main campus. Nestled in Muskoka on the Canadian Shield, the Centre is a year-round research, teaching and community centre that the University is working to establish as a high profile research centre for ecology, climate change, tourism, land-use planning and local economic development.
The Centre features beautiful meeting and lecture facilities to accommodate groups from five to 225 participants. A variety of environments are available for interaction, contemplation, research and instruction, situated amongst the rocks, lakes, and trees that give Muskoka its' breath-taking vistas.
The soon to be completed on-site ecology wet lab will offer visiting researchers the option to initiate testing and research as they take advantage of the field research opportunities available in and around Huntsville, a small, but renowned tourist community situated on the Canadian Shield.
The Centre's resident style accommodations can house 45 people and overlooks the rocks, trees and lakes for which the region is known. Within walking distance to hotel accommodations, it also serves as an idyllic setting for larger community events, as well as academic and professional training courses, meetings, conferences, workshops and field exercises.
