Canadian Social Innovation Exchange

November 27 - 29, 2017 | Toronto, Ontario | Artscape Daniels Spectrum & Centre for Social Innovation


Do you design or implement social and environmental programs, advance new policy, work to improve communities or shift deeper systems? This gathering of 250+ social innovators is for you.


We start from the premise that Canada -- and the world -- faces huge challenges that can only be solved through collaboration across all sectors -- public, private, and civil society. Spark! will facilitate the exchange of ideas among people with experience of working intentionally toward change. Whether it's education, climate change, social and economic inclusion -- whatever issue you are working on, Spark! seeks to promote learning, connect participants from across silos or regions, and forge a renewed commitment to concerted action.


Spark! brings together Canadian and local champions of social innovation and includes many voices with diverse perspectives on social innovation practices.  

We are  engaging front-line practitioners and anchor institutions across sectors, including government, financial institutions and funders who are supporting social innovation.
