WELCOME TO WILLOWBANK
Willowbank is a unique private career college in Canada and has been on the vanguard heritage conservation and the adaptive reuse of existing buildings since 2006. We are the Canadian headquarters of INTBAU, a global network promoting traditional building, architecture, and urbanism.
The Willowbank Mission: as an innovative institution is to shape new approaches to the stewardship of historic places and sustainable communities through a model balancing the theoretical and practical. Its multi-disciplinary, experiential curriculum educates a new generation of leaders in the field of heritage conservation who are able to understand complex challenges across disciplines, from design firms to skilled trades to community development.
Our unique Three-Year Diploma program provides students with a professional network that can take their career path in many directions. Coursework focuses on developing skills and knowledge related to conserving our built and cultural heritage. Our focus on providing a well-rounded education in heritage conservation and sustainability is made possible by the exceptional faculty practitioners who came from across Canada, the United States, and Denmark.
Willowbank Venue Rental and Weddings
Whether you’re looking to host your next corporate meeting, private event or whimsical wedding, there’s a whole host of celebratory options at Willowbank. With Covid-19 restrictions easing we are pleased to share that we have plenty of availability throughout 2022 and 2023.
Willowbank is located on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabeg, Ojibway/Chippewa and Haudenosaunee peoples. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and is within the land protected by the Dish With One Spoon Wampum agreement. Today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples and acknowledging reminds us that our great standard of living is directly related to the resources and friendship of Indigenous people.
