WIL > About WIL > The Skill Centre

In 1997, the WIL Skill Centre Corporation was founded with the purchase and renovation of a former department store in downtown London. The Skill Centre’s business model incorporated not-for-profit tenants serving a diversity of employment and learning needs in our community, and a national retail tenant under one roof.

The Skill Centre’s focus has always been about bringing people and jobs together. In addition to WIL, current non-profit tenants include ATN Access Inc. and La Société Économique de l’Ontario (SÉO).

The Skill Centre also serves as a popular downtown community meeting space. A large conference room (with kitchen facilities and a rooftop patio), and 3 boardrooms are available for rent. The Skill Centre’s conference facility was designed to host events both large and small. The facility is well suited for a wide range of events, including board meetings, annual general meetings, press conferences, and social gatherings. Located on The Skill Centre’s 6th Floor, our 3 board rooms and larger conference room (accommodating up to 100 guests), are equipped for audio-visual presentations and a full kitchen is available to meet your catering requirements. A roof-top deck overlooking downtown London is also available for use during the warmer months. The facility is wheelchair accessible, with easy and convenient public parking located next door at the Covent Garden Market. Our entrance is located on Market Lane.
