A Way Forward for HRSDC
Social Innovation Generation (SiG) partnered with the Public Policy Forum (PPF) to design and facilitate a March 3, 2011 Knowledge Exchange event on Social Innovation (SI), Social Finance (SF), and Social Partnerships (SP) for Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) and the Community Development and Partnerships Directorate – ISSD Branch. The event took place at the Chateau Laurier in Ottawa with 170 senior public servants from across government departments. The Social Trends, Policy and Institutions Committee, whose secretariat is housed at Strategic Policy and Research Branch, HRSDC, sponsored the event.
This document provides a brief overview of the event and a framework for government social innovation conversations in the future.
