The Manitoba Social Innovation Stories Project was an initiative of the Manitoba Federation of Non-Profit Organizations in partnership with the Canadian Non-Profit Innovators Network. This network is made up of a number of non-profit sector organizations across Canada who are each exploring the role of social innovation in the non-profit world through a different lens. In Manitoba, our contribution to this national conversation paid special attention to the ways in which non-profits are doing innovative work around inter-generational cooperation. As the Winnipeg regional coordinator for the Canadian Non-Profit Innovators Network, I was responsible for overseeing a web-based project to engage leaders in Manitoba’s non-profit sector in a conversation about social innovation. I planned and developed a blog to publish stories about Manitoba-based social innovations, interviews with non-profit leaders and I contributed essays with commentary and analysis.
