Working in partnership with Concordia University (Karl Polanyi Institute, District 3 Innovation Center), the Chantier de l'économie sociale and the TIESS, CHNGR's mission is to encourage social innovation and the development of collective and social entrepreneurship projects.
CHNGR Programs & Activities
Ambassador Program (“The Embassy”)
CHNGR's Ambassador program recruits students from universities and cegeps across the Greater Montreal area. The goal is to build a dynamic team to raise awareness of collective entrepreneurship, support entrepreneurial projects, and help guide students towards the appropriate resources to turn their ideas into tangible positive social impacts.
By mapping existing projects, success stories, actors and needs, the ambassadors help to see where linkages need to happen and build bridges between campuses and projects.
Becoming an ambassador comes with a list of benefits, including a bursary between 2000-4000$, as well as access to the forerunners of social and collective entrepreneurship in Québec.
The Curriculum Design Challenge aims to generate creative ideas for a 15-credit certificate in social entrepreneurship and social innovation at Concordia University.
Online Portal & Resources
CHNGR's online portal helps connect innovators and entrepreneurs to the right resources and a network of experts and fellow students wanting to contribute.
