Lessons from Toronto’s Centre for Social Innovation

While I’ve known about Toronto’s Centre for Social Innovation (CSI) for several years now, I’d never really taken the time to learn its history and understand its model. As it is an obvious model for Notman House to learn from, I’ve been reading CSI’s great (and beautiful!) Shared Spaces for Innovation series. While few of the ideas were new to me, the way they are told, as people’s stories and anecdotes, is much more engaging than the dry academic treatment they usually receive.

As we are currently trying to secure government funding for the project, I’m looking forward to reading “Proof” the third part of the series where they discuss the impact the CSI has had. I’m told it should be published shortly.
