Fanshawe College: The Canadian Centre for Product Validation


The Canadian Centre for Product Validation (CCPV) is the first test facility of its kind in Canada. The initial phase of a three-phase project, the new for-profit Centre signals an innovative and entrepreneurial spirit at Fanshawe College that will increase Canada’s capacity to undertake national research. Preliminary designs express the energy and optimism of a unique facility that will increase our national research and innovation capacity, and further establish London as an entrepreneurial and innovation hub with Fanshawe College at it’s centre.

Beginning with testing and validation services primarily for Southern Ontario, the CCPV expands its outreach activities more broadly across Ontario and Canada, with an eye to long-term potential for internationally-based clients. The Center has two components – a two-storey office space totaling approximately 2000 square feet and an attached single-storey, industrial high-bay space of approximately 18,000 square feet. The Centre offers comprehensive product validation with access to chambers for thermal, mechanical, electrical, and environmental testing.
