If you’re excited about using technology and design in the public interest, you belong at Civic Hall Toronto.
Civic Hall Toronto is a program that connects government innovators, entrepreneurs, technologists and residents, and empowers them to collaboratively address civic challenges. We offer training, events, space and project support to individuals and teams using technology and design for the common good.
Collaboration drives innovation
At Civic Hall Toronto, we understand the power of collaboration. Taking expertise from one area and applying it to another can yield new insights. Building products and services with the people who will use them can lead to better outcomes. And learning from the successes of others can shorten the runway for new ventures.
Civic Hall Toronto’s programming is designed to foster productive, cross-sector collaboration. We provide training and support members with their projects by connecting them with skilled practitioners and engaged residents.
New ideas need new spaces
To realize the potential for technology and design to serve the public interest, we need spaces and communities where collaboration and ‘outside the box’ thinking are encouraged. These spaces break down siloes — uniting passionate and talented people with an interest in civic innovation — and enable the best ideas and practices for serving residents to be shared across sectors.
That’s what Civic Hall Toronto’s collaboration space is all about. Located at the Centre for Social Innovation in downtown Toronto, the venue offers members the opportunity to work in a vibrant environment, perfect for exploring new ideas and facilitating collaboration.
