Community and College Social Innovation Fund

As a result of the federal government’s Economic Action Plan 2014, this funding opportunity will provide $15 million over three years in support of social innovation research projects at colleges and polytechnics. This pilot initiative will connect the talent, facilities and capabilities of Canada’s colleges and polytechnics with the research needs of local community organizations. It aims to enable colleges to increase their capacity to work with communities, with the goal of developing partnerships that foster social innovation in areas such as education, integration of vulnerable populations, and community development.
