Social Innovation Generation Book (SiG)

Fostering a Canadian Ecosystem for Systems Change

Social innovation is in Canada’s nature. From the advent of medicare to peacekeeping, Blue Box recycling to Greenpeace, Canada is a country with a long history of social innovation beginning with First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities.

From coast to coast to coast, passionate people driven by necessity, human ingenuity, and care innovate to collaboratively transform the very way society works and make it more inclusive, sustainable, just and well. Social Innovation Generation (SiG) came together to serve these people and communities. For us, this meant understanding and nurturing the conditions across sectors and across the country for social innovations to scale, endure, and have impact.

Sharing our decade-long journey is our final step. We hope you find this story useful in your work towards positive systems change.
