We enable collaborators to take a human-centred approach to innovation to design with people and empower communities.
We bring together non-profit partners, government, philanthropists, businesses, and the community to design for a better future.
From Calgary to Edmonton, Lethbridge to Lac La Biche, from Medicine Hat to Morinville, Alberta is full of social innovators who want to create change and improve lives in our community. We have partnered with Creative Partnerships Alberta to help non-profit organizations change the world.
For the last couple of years, The SIL has been working on an initiative that is aimed at increasing food security in Calgary. As a part of this initiative, we are hosting a pop-up pay what you want market, that gives people the freedom to meet their household needs and stay within their budget.
In the spirit of our journey to promote reconciliation, we would like to honour the truth of our shared history and acknowledge Treaty 7 territory and the traditional lands of the Blackfoot Confederacy, that includes the Kainai, Siksika, and Piikani First Nations.
We acknowledge the traditional lands of the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda, including the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations. We would also like to recognize the Métis people, and the Inuit people who have made their home here in Mohk’insstsis, also known as Calgary.
