The University acknowledges and appreciates the continued strong support from York Region Residents, current and future students, the business community and the many community groups and government partners who share York University’s vision that a new Markham Campus is essential, valuable and beneficial for the entire community.

York University is realizing its bold vision of building the new Markham Campus, thanks to generous in-kind and financial contributions from York Region and the City of Markham. Donor contributions are also instrumental in realizing this bold vision. The University continues to engage the community to support one of our top priorities for Impact: The Campaign for York University.

The University sees itself as embedded within the City of Markham and the Broader communities of York Region. Consequently, the University is actively seeking partner feedback and participation at every step in the development of the Markham Campus. The University is incredibly thankful to all of the community groups, businesses and government partners who have already provided input into the academic planning, sought out research partnerships and provided opportunities for work integrated learning for our students.
