Our Foundations

Innovation is more than a spark; it is a process, one that requires a roadmap, resources and the right people at your side.

We strive to create a centre where business, education and municipality join into an interactive knowledge community. One that not only highlights Niagara’s talent, but also uncovers business opportunities that help our city retain and attract youth and talent, produce our own skilled workforce, and solve local challenges through technological innovation.

Building our future with collective impact
The Collective Impact project is a four-year strategy to work with the City of Niagara Falls and our 12 communities across Niagara to develop system-wide solutions for youth as they build and act upon plans for their future and the jobs of tomorrow. Since 2016, Spark Niagara has collaborated with colleagues in Canada, the United States and internationally as a co-catalyst in advancing Collective Impact idea as a framework for community innovation and change.
