The Centre for Biodiversity Genomics is based in a 50,000ft2  research facility that was constructed in two phases (2007, 2012) with $30M from the Canada Foundation for Innovation, the Ontario Ministry of Research and Innovation, and Genome Canada. It spans three buildings.

The newest building, which opened in 2012, houses the Collections, the DNA Archive, and the Data Centre, as well as research and administration offices.

The original building, completed in 2007, contains the Canadian Centre for DNA Barcoding, research labs, our presentation theatre, and meeting spaces.

A third building called The Annex contains facilities for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, including office space and laboratories equipped for specimen preparation and molecular analyses.
