LEDlab wins RECODE-Cities for People Civic Innovation Award!
J.W.McConnell Foundation chooses LEDlab as one of seven projects across Canada that positions post-secondary institutions as catalysts of positive change in cities.
We’re pleased to announce that the Local Economic Development Lab is one of seven projects recognized across Canada to showcase innovative collaborations between cities and post-secondary institutions. LEDlab applied under the Innovative Citizenship and Service theme, focused on enhancing capacity to engage and take action on community and city issues.
RECODE and Cities for People are both initiatives of the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation. Jurors received more than 150 applications for this competitive award. Lab Manager, Kiri Bird, will travel to Montreal in June to receive the award at the New Cities Summit. We are humbled and excited by this recognition and look forward to meeting the other recipients from across the country in June.
