University of Ottawa names new Minto Sports Complex

Ottawa, November 10, 2011 - The University of Ottawa announced today that its Sports Complex, located at 801 King Edward Avenue, has been named the Minto Sports Complex in recognition of The Minto Group’s $2.5 million contribution to the uOttawa community. Part of this gift included facilitating the acquisition of the land where the Desmarais Building now stands.

Minto’s financial support and collaboration with the University of Ottawa has allowed our institution to strategically expand its footprint in downtown Ottawa, to establish itself as one of the nation’s capital public landmarks and thus, further confirm itself as Canada’s University.

Minto is a leading builder and developer in both Canada and the United States dedicated to delivering superior customer experiences and inspiring places for their many stakeholders to live and work. The company was founded in Ottawa in 1955, and has not only established itself as a leader in design, sustainability and construction excellence but as a philanthropic mainstay in the community.  Minto’s generous support of the university is aligned with two of their strategic community investment priorities that they consider the foundation of a healthy, active community - education and sports programs.

The University of Ottawa is a cosmopolitan community of close to 45,000 students, faculty and staff who live, work and study in both English and French. At the heart of Canada's capital, the University of Ottawa is one of our country's leading research universities
