Great Northern Way Trust is jointly owned by UBC, SFU, BCIT and Emily Carr University of Art + Design. It was set up in 2001, following a gift from Finning of an 18-acre site on the False Creek Flats. The Trust has two principal activities – operation of the Centre for Digital Media and the revitalization of its land parcel to bring together businesses, academia and the general community into an emerging district for the digital and creative sectors. Great Northern Way Campus is also the new location of Emily Carr University of Art + Design, as well as the location of a SkyTrain station on the future Broadway Corridor line. Great Northern Way Trust is forming as a unique Innovation District in downtown Vancouver.
Monica currently volunteers her time and expertise as an Independent Director on the Board of Directors and is the new Chair of the Real Estate Committee.
