Members of the public caught a glimpse of design plans for a centre set to open in downtown Toronto next year — a space that will provide resources to Indigenous entrepreneurs. 

Initial designs and space ideas for the Indigenous Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (ICIE), which will be located at the corner of Jarvis and Dundas Streets, were shared on Thursday at a public meeting.

The centre is set to open by the end of 2020.
