The Civic Innovation Office delivers and develops innovative approaches to problem solving within City government.

Each year, the Office will tackle meaningful and complex challenges affecting residents of Toronto by co-designing and co-creating solutions alongside City Staff, residents and local organizations.

Reporting to the City Manager’s Office, the Civic Innovation Office was created through a three-year grant from Bloomberg Philanthropies’ global i-team program, which helps cities build capacity for innovation through data, design thinking and technology.

Acting as a bridge between the City and Toronto’s growing innovation and technology community, the Office takes a collaborative approach to addressing complex challenges to help improve the quality of life for local residents.
