How can we improve the standard of living for one million Canadians within the next three to five years through the innovative use of technology? That’s the question for the 2017 Canadian Global Impact Challenge will aim to answer.

 The Global Impact Challenges are annual competitions held around the world to provide a platform for outstanding entrepreneurs, leaders, scientists and engineers with the most innovative ideas to positively impacting millions of lives through the use of technology.  2017 marks the third challenge held in Canada and is being hosted by ventureLAB, Deloitte and ReMAP.

 The winner of each challenge receives reserved admission and tuition fees to the Global Solutions Program at Singularity University, a highly competitive 9-week program which brings together 80 students from around the globe.

 Submissions must be received by February 15, 2017. Five finalists with the top scoring submissions will be selected to present their ideas at a live event in Toronto in April 2017 . Visit for more information.
