The 2019 Innovation Nation Conference will feature presentations by innovators, inventors, business and industry leaders who are changing the way we live, work and play and redefining our cultural, economic and healthcare initiatives with the goal of building a stronger, more prosperous Canada.

This year, the Conference will feature a Student Innovation Showcase, which will endeavour to shine a light on the skills and ingenuity of our students. All Canadian high school and university/college students are invited to participate in the showcase.

The designs should be forward thinking, embody ideas that are both transformational and unique, have functionality demonstrating ease of use and a practical application in the real world.

This showcase is an opportunity for your students to present their ideas, ingenuity and talent to industry professionals, potential mentors, employers and business leaders who are internationally recognized for their accomplishments. Exceptional exhibits will receive special recognition.

For the showcase, innovations must be presented by one (or more) members of each team entered in the event. Teachers/professors are not permitted to participate in the live presentations.

All students entered must be registered in a Canadian educational institution at the time of the event or had just completed their final semester in the institution of their category.

This is a “future forward” opportunity that will provide students with an opportunity to engage imagination, intellect and expertise to help to shape new ideas and innovations to create a better Canada.
