Innovate Now Canada

  • Vancouver Convention Centre 1055 Canada Place Vancouver, BC, V6C 0C3 Canada (map)

The Vancouver Innovation Labs and Envisioning Labs ( are proud to participate as community partners in the upcoming Innovate Now Canada ( conference, and we are inviting our community to be part in one of the most significant innovation summits in the country.

We're falling behind our competitors, because we don't embrace a culture of innovation.

Together, we can fix that.

Innovate Now Canada is a partnership between CityAge and The Rideau Hall Foundation, which exists to amplify the Office of the Governor General in its work to connect, honour and inspire Canadians.

The summit will bring together 250 leaders in innovation from across Canada and abroad.

It will present tools and ideas to improve Canadian productivity, grow the economy and build an inclusive society.

Innovate Now Canada ( will include presentations from:

• Ardine Williams, Global Vice President, People Operations, Amazon
