Are You Making Toronto Better? Apply to the Agents of Change Program

You are here

Are you addressing issues of income inequality in your community? Are you working on a new mode of transportation? Is your technology going to change how we connect to local officials?

The Centre for Social Innovation is teaming up with 15 outstanding partners to support ten great ideas for a better Toronto.

Great cities are the product of engaged and active citizens. The types of people who insist on rolling up their sleeves to make their city a better place. We need your help to find the very best!

The Agents of Change: City Builders program was created to give these dreamers, doers and innovators a helping hand. We’re running a one month contest to find and support ten great ideas. The Agents of Change winners will be connected to the people, places and resources they need to unlock their potential and transform our city.
