Canada's Innovation 150 history and today
April 07 2016
Five of Canada's leading science outreach organizations have partnered to bring Innovation150 to life.
Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, Actua, the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo, the Canada Science & Technology Museums Corporation, and the Canadian Association of Science Centres, along with its members, are bringing Innovation150 exhibits and programming to locations across the country. The program starts in Waterloo Region in October 2016 and then travels coast to coast to coast throughout 2017.
The Honourable Minister of Canadian Heritage Mélanie Joly unveiled the initiative in Halifax, N.S., where she announced $5,875,000 in funding for Innovation150 programming from the Government of Canada, through the Canada 150 Fund. Innovation150 is one of several Signature Initiatives planned to celebrate the country’s past, present, and future nationwide in 2017.
