SiG fostered a culture of continuous social innovation in Canada

It was a collaborative partnership founded by The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation, MaRS Discovery District, PLAN Institute and the Waterloo Institute for Social Innovation and Resilience (WISIR). While the sun has set on the formal partnership, this site stands as an archive to social innovation resources, programs, and ways of contributing to positive change.
