Members

In order to achieve this vision and these goals, the Consortium E21 brings together representatives of educational institutions (all levels), organizations, and associations directly or indirectly linked to education, government agencies, and private sector companies, from the Ottawa-Gatineau region, from Canada and from other parts of the world.
