The Community Innovation Lab is where entrepreneurs go for cutting edge, unique training programs to help take their business to the next level. Whether you have a start-up or an established business, Community Innovation Lab programs can help. We are funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation, Ontario Centres of Excellence and other community partners. The programs are free to attend for all accepted applicants. Our four signature programs include the NEET Youth Incubator (supporting young entrepreneurs), The Refinery (a business accelerator for women entrepreneurs), the Social Enterprise Accelerator (supporting social entrepreneurs), and the Co-iLab Hub (a central access point for all entrepreneurs to collaborate, convene and co-create solutions).

Our mission is to inspire, catalyze, and advance a community of entrepreneurs. We are an incubator for enterprising ideas and an accelerator for promising ventures. The Community Innovation Lab was founded by Pramilla Ramdahani with the vision of an organization designed to equip people with opportunities to create (entrepreneurial projects), experience (immersive work placements) and transform (communities through the creation of world-changing projects).
