A hub for horticultural innovation

The campus, located on Lake Ontario in Niagara, was created through a gift by Moses F. Rittenhouse in 1906. This endowment contributed to the emergence of a competitive tender fruit industry, and more recently, wine and greenhouse industries in one of Canada’s unique geographic regions.

Vineland’s 218-acre campus showcases 35 buildings including research laboratories, farms and greenhouses and is maintained by the Agricultural Research Institute of Ontario (ARIO).

In 2006, a panel was established by Ontario’s Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs to develop a vision that would lead to the transformation of Vineland into a world-class research and innovation centre.
