ABOUT MADEMILL

At MadeMill, our team of design professionals deliver products and services from our headquarters at the Bayview Yards Innovation Centre in Ottawa. MadeMill and the Innovation Centre are funded in part by generous contribution by the FedDev Ontario program, the City of Ottawa and the Government of Ontario. Our mission is to make product creation and social innovation accessible, affordable, and above all connect the many services and resources necessary to move an idea into reality.

Bayview Yards has quickly become the hub for creators and designers to advance their ideas into commercial successes. There has never been a better time to mix together ideas, skills, and technologies to build the world of tomorrow.

MadeMill is the Advanced Digital Media Lab and the Makerspace located at Bayview Yards. In the Advanced Digital Media Lab, we tell stories by using cutting edge equipment, VR, Augmented Reality, 4.6k cameras, drones, audio production and much more. In the Makerspace, we use advanced manufacturing techniques with tools including a waterjet cutter, CNC machine, welding, and a variety of 3d printers to physically create products.
