DIYBio Toronto is a non-profit corporation, inspired by the eponymous international organization, DIYBio.org. We incorporated in January 2016.
DIYBio runs a small laboratory in downtown Toronto. We share a 2700 square foot space with Hacklab Toronto that includes a machine shop, classroom, darkroom, kitchen, recreational facilities, and an outdoor yard. Our lab has a six foot fume hood, three workbenches, a sink area, and ample storage space. We also operate a large vacuum chamber in the adjacent unit for sputter deposition research. The space is managed by our laboratory manager.
Board of Directors: Jasmine, Eric, Carla, Rana
Lab manager: Victor
Safety officer: Misha
Facilities manager (Hacklab): Aaron
Membership with Hacklab Toronto is the only requirement to join DIYBio Toronto and begin training. It costs $50 per month and includes access to the entire facility; the tools, the machinery, and space to host events for a community of about 100 people, along with a list of other benefits. Additionally, there is a $20 monthly fee for using the lab to cover operating costs.
