Why Do We Need Innovation?
There's a way to do it better - find it.
What is an Innovation Lab?
CASE’s Innovation Lab was created in 2021 to support, promote, and share learnings from innovative collaborations with community organizations, to remove barriers to employment facing people experiencing disability and to strengthen the Canadian economy.
The CASE Innovation Lab has received a grant through the federal government’s Sectoral Initiatives Program (SIP) to support up to 27 community organizations between now and the fall of 2024 to identify, support, test, and grow innovative solutions that facilitate the sustained and valued contributions persons experiencing disability can make to the Canadian economy.
Innovation Lab Collaborations
We invite you to share with us your transformative supportive employment project ideas – ideas that create opportunities, connect people, and crush the barriers that prevent persons with disabilities from participating fully in work and society.
A second Call for Proposals will take place in Spring 2023.
How Can I Get Involved?
We welcome selection committee members from across Canada and especially encourage applications from members of groups with historical and/or current barriers to equity, including but not limited to:
- Persons with visible and/or invisible disabilities
- Indigenous Peoples (First Nations including Status, Treaty or Non-Status, Metis, and Inuit)
- Members of groups that experience systemic oppression and discrimination due to race, ancestry, gender, colour, sexual orientation, religion and/or spiritual belief, or place of origin
