Fearless By Design / Délibérément audacieux

We take risks. We endeavour to explore the unknown. We shed light on learning and technology, and we fight for the right to information, literacy, and education for all. As knowledge and research experts, we venture to serve our communities, schools, and more. We forecast needs and provide services, spaces, and places that support everyone.

We are entrusted with holding the facts and evidence upon which a just society is based.  As our society transforms, so do we.

We are Fearless by Design.
