BCIdeas

BC is bursting with social innovation at all stages, from ideas to established programs. BC Ideas is a community of action, designed to identify, convene and invest in the best of these social innovations.

The first wave of more than $45,000 in investments will be distributed through an online collaborative competition, BC Ideas: Solutions for Stronger Communities. The competition seeks innovative solutions to health, social, and environmental challenges facing BC communities. Click here to learn more, and nominate social innovations in your community.
