This is the home of Simon Fraser University Business graduate management programs and services. The building, formerly the Bank of Montreal's western headquarters, was donated by chancellor emeritus Dr. Joseph Segal and his family.
The Segal project was started in 2000 and officially opened in 2005. The project represents another major rehabilitation and restoration of a 100 year old Heritage bank building in Vancouver’s downtown core. Its facilities are used by the business community for board meetings, annual general meetings, speaking events, and of course executive learning events. It provides meeting rooms, classrooms, boardrooms, work spaces, and flexible areas for many types of educational events. A truly beautiful and functional building, natural light is used in virtually all areas, advanced audio-visual equipment is permanently installed, and wireless internet access is available.

The Wosk Centre for Dialogue is an International Association of
Conference Centres rated facility available for use by the University,
business and community clients for conferences, meetings and events. It
is also the site for dialogue-based programming associated with Simon
Fraser University Continuing Studies Dialogue Programs and the Academic
Centre for Dialogue. The Wosk Centre brings together diverse sectors
and organizations to participate in open-minded discussion that
broadens perspectives and inspires participants to find collaborative
solutions to complex problems.
The Centre is also a show-piece of architectural revitalization in the heart of Vancouver. It is the outcome of generous civic engagement by donors and patrons, a gallery for major Canadian artists, a testing ground for great minds and new ideas within the university, and a resource for the wider community. Since its opening in September 2000 the Centre has been the catalyst for issues ranging from restorative justice to real estate, health care to transit, and international law to art. Innumerable smaller but important conversations, arbitrations and seminars occur here daily.
The Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue has been the recipient of many prestigious awards for building design, architecture and workmanship. These awards include:
