Innovation150 is an interactive, year-long celebration of Canadian innovation that will offer cutting-edge opportunities for youth, families, and communities across the country to experience innovation first-hand. As a Signature Initiative of the Government of Canada’s sesquicentennial celebrations, Innovation150 will share Canadian innovations of the past and focus on the innovations that will drive our future.

The program starts in Waterloo Region in October 2016 and then travels coast to coast to coast throughout 2017.
