What is Impact Canada? (Transcript)
At Impact Canada, we tackle some of Canada’s biggest challenges.
Like: Driving new solutions in clean technology, Building smarter cities and communities, Helping families save for education, Supporting indigenous innovation, and Addressing the opioid crisis.
These challenges are hard.
But we think that our relentless focus on outcomes will lead us to better results for Canadians.
So what makes us different from traditional government programs?
We’re part of a global movement using modern methods like: Challenge Prizes, Behavioural Insights, and Pay for Success funding models
These methods focus our efforts on what it is we’re trying to achieve, while at the same time designing smarter processes with less red tape.
It requires us to work differently and to develop new partnerships across government, not-for-profit and private sectors.
Together, we work to gain an in-depth understanding of the problem we’re addressing before choosing the right path to lead us to measurable results.
Our methods have already brought together non-traditional players and partnerships and we’re excited about some amazing new solutions….
Solutions that are being tested and nurtured right now.
Working with our partners, we question how things have traditionally been done, and look for new ways to address our biggest problems.
Together, we can bring exciting ideas to reality and shape a better future or all Canadians.
