Closing Thoughts

The Government of Canada is using challenges to generate innovative solutions to important issues that face Canadians and their communities. These challenges reward the best ideas and focus on achieving stronger social, environmental, and economic outcomes for citizens.

This guide has provided an overview of the Impact Canada challenge process based on observations and lessons learned from early phases of challenges launched in Canada since 2017. As experience in using challenges in a public policy context deepens and broadens, future iterations of this guide will include new insights as they emerge.
