Innovation Canada

What drives Canadians to do things differently, make things better and explore the unknown? This major exhibition will allow visitors to get to know great Canadians including, Wilder G. Penfield, the man who mapped the human brain; George Klein, who developed not only a suturing system for reconnecting arteries, but a battery-powered wheelchair and the STEM satellite antenna; and Elsie MacGill, the first Canadian woman to receive a degree in electrical engineering. Over 100 artifacts are on display, including Bombardier's B7 snowmobile, a Newt suit, a Deep Rover deep sea vehicle, the Theratron Cobalt-60 bomb, and a replica of the hockey goalie mask worn by Jacques Plante.
