Social Innovation Generation, The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation & Innoweave

Social Innovation Generation (SiG) believes that complex, persistent and "wicked" social and ecological problems can be solved. SiG is a collaborative initiative addressing Canada's social and ecological challenges by seeking to catalyze a culture of continuous social innovation. Our focus is enhancing Canada's resilience by engaging the creativity and resources of all sectors to collaborate on social innovations that have impact, durability and scale.

The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation envisions a Canada where all people feel a sense of belonging and contribute as active citizens to improving the well-being of all.Established in 1937 by John Wilson McConnell (1877-1963), The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation engages Canadians in building a more innovative, inclusive, sustainable and resilient society.

In Canada, new approaches such as developmental evaluation, social enterprise, social finance, impact and strategic clarity, collective impact, outcomes finance, constructive engagement, scaling impact, and cloud computing are helping charities and non-profits generate greater impact, more quickly, and at less cost.

Innoweave helps community organizations learn about, assess, and implement these approaches. Innoweave is organized into modules, each focusing on a different approach to social innovation. The Innoweave Process offers five layers of support for organizations looking to understand, test and implement new approaches to help enhance their impact.
