The Home of the Next Economy
Since 2004, the Centre for Social Innovation has been a home — both online and offline — for thousands of smart, kind, and principled people. We’re working together to create a system that puts people and planet first.
Our membership includes many of the world’s most respected organizations, enterprises, and NGOs. We are artists and activists, entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs, government agencies and national foundations, university departments and Fortune 500s. And we all envision an economy that is sustainable, equitable, and prosperous for all.
Whether you are a newcomer to the world of social innovation, a seasoned entrepreneur looking for tools to support your venture’s success, or a supporter of social impact projects, we have something for you.

Add What You Need

Once you’ve become a CSI Member, the workspace options are endless. Starting with just a mailbox, you can add a desk, a table, an office, or an auditorium as needed at CSI Annex (720 Bathurst Street) or CSI Spadina (192 Spadina Avenue).
Learn from experts in social innovation, marketing and communications, funding, operations and strategy, impact creation and measurement, and personal and community resilience.
