Located right across the street from the main campus, the Montreal Forum has been a partner of Dawson since 2010 through the addition of classroom space. Nine classrooms were established on the 4th floor of the Forum in 2010, and four additional classrooms in 2011. The expansion was made to the 2nd floor in 2018 and additional spaces were added in 2021 and 2022.

Coined the “most storied building in hockey history,” the Forum is where Robinson experienced many moments of glory, and the company has been heavily involved with the College’s golf tournament. This year, the Forum has provided the biggest single sponsorship of the tournament history to date.
