Canada’s Culture of Innovation Index
Developed by the Rideau Hall Foundation in partnership with Edelman, Canada’s Culture of Innovation Index is derived from the results of an original survey of how we, as Canadians, approach and value innovation in all spheres of our society. The Index provides a guidepost to how we are making sure that we are all participants in an innovation-supporting culture.
Canadian Innovation Week
Powered by the Rideau Hall Foundation, the annual Canadian Innovation Week brings together partners and stakeholders from the innovation ecosystem to connect, cultivate and celebrate Canadian innovation. The inaugural Canadian Innovation Week was held in May 2018 with 18 events across Canada and over 10,000 participants.
Established in 2016, the Governor General’s Innovation Awards (GGIA) inspire Canadians to embrace innovation and emulate those who are having a meaningful impact on our quality of life. The awards celebrate trailblazers who help shape our society and our future, and who inspire the next generation of innovators. The RHF overs the execution of all aspects of the program working with nominating partners.
