Social Innovation Week returns! In 2014, a series of events, collaborations and gatherings swept the nation; although each event was self-organized, they collectively fell in the space of a shared week, leading to Social Innovation Canada 2014.
Once again, we are celebrating serendipity. The week of November 27 — December 1, 2017 is bursting with energy and opportunity across the social innovation community in Canada. It is a feast of events, collaborations and connections. Social Innovation Week is back!
Know of other bright lights in social innovation taking place that week?
Let us know!

MONDAY: NOVEMBER 27
Spark! A Canadian Social Innovation Exchange
Starting on Monday, Spark! Canadian Social Innovation Exchange ignites and will burn brightly for three days at Daniels Spectrum | Artscape and CSI Regent Park in Toronto (ON). Over 250 social innovators will come together in a collision of future-facing workshops and activities, exchanging ideas to promote learning, connect participants from across silos or regions, and forge a renewed commitment to concerted action around social innovation in Canada. Give voice and expression to Canada’s social innovation ecosystem.
In Burlington (ON), participants of Tamarack‘s one-day workshop join internationally recognized facilitator and community builder Sylvia Cheuy for a workshop exploring citizen leadership: how it is nurtured and why it is a strategy a growing number of organizations and municipalities are embracing.
