The Élisabeth-Bruyère School of Social Innovation is the first school of social innovation in Canada. Its approach to social innovation is clear: its objective must be social transformation. Its pedagogical approach is founded on practical engagement, block-style teaching, and integration with the Mauril-Bélanger Social Innovation Workshop.

Opened in April 2018, The Atelier is a not-for-profit, member-based organization. We are an inclusive bilingual space (physical and virtual) for collaboration, training, knowledge-sharing, and support for social innovations. Our non-profit organization is the practical branch of an ecosystem located at Saint Paul University in Ottawa alongside the Élisabeth Bruyère School of Social Innovation and the Centre for Research on Inequalities and Social Transformations (CRITS). Our members are stakeholders in the field of social innovation: students, researchers, practitioners, entrepreneurs and local communities.

Propulser le changement social

Le Centre de recherche sur les innovations et les transformation sociale  vise le déploiement d’une recherche engagée selon quatre axes: émancipation, action sociale, gestion démocratique, pratique de la recherche et pédagogie émancipatrice. Sous chacun de ces axes, son projet est de développer une analyse critique des systèmes en place ainsi que de participer à la conception d’alternatives.
