After many years, the entire CanAssist team is together under the same roof.

Monday, Feb. 15, CanAssist moved to a facility on UVic's campus called E-Hut. The one-storey building is located behind Campus Security, not far from the McKinnon Gym.

For the past several years, CanAssist team members have been scattered across campus, working in a number of different buildings, including, most recently, the Technology Enterprise Facility and Cunningham Building.

The freshly renovated E-Hut provides 5,000 square feet of space where CanAssist's engineers, computer programmers and operations staff, as well as volunteers and clients, can work together.

β€œIt's very exciting that we are moving to such a wonderful space. It's going to make a huge difference to every facet of our program,” said Director Nigel Livingston.

The University has made an incredible commitment to CanAssist. We are extremely appreciative of that.”

Recent renovations to E-Hut include making the building fully accessible, with features such as a state-of- the-art wheelchair ramp and accessible washroom, as well as cosmetic upgrades.

CanAssist is exploring renovating the laboratory area of E-Hut in 2010 to include a small localized machine and specialized electronics shop.
