For Canada’s 150th anniversary, five of the country’s leading science research and outreach organizations came together to form Innovation150, a unique partnership to inspire Canadian innovators and help build fundamental STEM skills coast to coast to coast. 

Supported by the Department of Canadian Heritage, Innovation150 is led by Perimeter Institute, in collaboration with Actua, the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo, the Canadian Association of Science Centres, and the Canada Science and Technology Museums Corporation. 
In this symposium, leaders from each organization will share the lessons they learned in teaming up to deliver this high-visibility, national outreach initiative that’s engaging millions of Canadian youth and their families. The session will focus on:
  • Aligning different organizations under a common vision
  • Strategies for targeting and tailoring science outreach to very diverse audiences across Canada through in-person, online and legacy-driven activities
  • Creating an infrastructure of open collaboration that encourages regional partners to participate, enhance, and benefit from the project
  • Structuring pan-organizational partnerships for success, including governance, sponsorship, and marketing communications
  • Recommendations for future science outreach initiatives
Filled with candid discussion, interactive opportunities, and anecdotes from Flin Flon to Arctic Bay, we invite you to explore ways to leverage models like Innovation150 to increase the reach and impact of future public engagement initiatives in Canada and beyond.
Innovation150 is a partnership supported by the Department of Canadian Heritage between Perimeter Institute, Actua, the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo, the Canadian Association of Science Centres, and the Canada Science and Technology Museums Corporation.
