College and Community Social Innovation Fund (CCSIF) grants are intended to foster social innovation by connecting the talent, facilities and capabilities of Canada’s colleges and polytechnics with the research needs of local community organizations. CCSIF proposals should facilitate collaborative social innovation research that brings together researchers, students and partners to address research challenges in social innovation, leading to solutions addressing a Canadian community need.
The CCSIF program enables colleges to increase their capacity to work with communities, with the goal of developing partnerships that foster social innovation in areas such as education, integration of vulnerable populations, and community development.
Canada’s colleges and polytechnics are well equipped to contribute to social innovation initiatives by tapping into the knowledge, experience, facilities and community connections available through their departments and programs.
