  3. A multi-sector conversation about social innovation and how it can change the way we support and interact with each other in the 21st century. Social change is increasingly dependent on collaborative action, as well as ongoing experimentation. In the face of constant economic and social uncertainty, meeting the needs of Canadians requires even more creativity to address current and emerging social issues. To explore the growing impact of the community sector and share perspectives on creating optimum conditions for social innovation, the conference will focus on best practices in Canada and the role of all sectors – business, government, non-profit, and academe – in leading social change.
