Toronto is starting to reopen its doors, and we can’t wait to welcome you back. But it’s going to take us a little longer due to our interactive, high-touch exhibits. We’re working on a comprehensive plan to make sure it’s safe when we open our doors again–so thank you for your patience. As soon as we have more details, we’ll share.

On September 26, 1969, the world’s first interactive science centre opened its doors, inviting visitors to explore and engage with science more intimately than ever before. Fifty years and fifty three million visitors later, we continue to inspire lifelong learning, curiosity and innovation.

The Science Centre is proud to offer a variety of Corporate Sponsorship opportunities to companies who are committed to innovation, inspiration and the human adventure of discovery.

Events and Cause Marketing

The RBC Innovators’ Ball is the Centre’s annual signature fundraising event. Click here to learn more about the event, and for sponsorship and table purchase inquiries.

Another way to support the Centre is through third-party events. These events are an opportunity for you to use your creative ideas to help raise vital funds for the Centre. A third party event can be as simple hosting a company-wide bake sale or a golf tournament or gala where proceeds support the Centre. The Science Centre team is here to support your event and get you started.

Cause Marketing is an excellent way to align your brand and products with the Science Centre. By donating a portion of profits from product sales, or collecting donations at checkout, your customers will appreciate your company’s efforts to give back to a good cause. Partnering with a non-profit like the Science Centre on a cause marketing campaign will help you to solidify brand loyalty with customers, increase sales and boost employee morale based on data from a global study.

Experiential Activations and Sampling

Get in front of our visitors with an on-site experiential activation or hand out samples of your products. These temporary activations are an excellent way to launch a new product or service, build brand awareness and re-ignite customer interest with our strong visitor and member base.

Recognition and Benefits

With over 900,000 visitors annually, the Ontario Science Centre can help your company meet its marketing and brand goals, and reach our audience of families and students with exclusive sponsorship opportunities tailored to your company. In addition to the intangible benefits of aligning with a recognized and respected institution, the Centre is pleased to offer a variety of ways to recognize your organization’s contribution.
