Tonya Surman explains the concept behind The Center For Social Innovation, a shared downtown Toronto workspace, housing close to 200 charities, non-profit organizations and social enterprises.

The 5000 square foot space is communal and collaborative, allowing for an exchange of world-changing ideas and innovations. The Center For Social Innovation's co founder Surman names collaboration as the driving force behind her concept for the center. One of the institution's main goals is to work at building a social ecosystem that shares a commitment to change our world.

This Canadian workspace stands alone as the only office of its kind, allowing a multitude of social innovation-focused individuals to create networks and make connections. The center's concept focuses on efficient and effective social innovation practices, aimed at helping organizations to succeed and realize their ideas.
