Providing a platform for action.
Health Innovation Initiative would like to begin by acknowledging that the land on which we gather is the traditional and unceded territory of the Kanien’keha:ka (Mohawk), a place which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst nations.
With this, we respect the longstanding relationships that Indigenous Nations have to this land, as they are the original caretakers. We acknowledge historical and ongoing injustices that Indigenous Peoples (e.g. First Nations, Métis and Inuit) endure in Canada, and we accept responsibility as an organisation to contribute toward revealing and correcting miseducation as well as renewing respectful relationships with Indigenous communities through our teaching, research and community service.
WHO WE ARE
The Health Innovation Initiative (HI2) is a non-profit organisation founded in Montréal in 2017. Our mission is to strengthen health innovation in Canada. We do this by bridging gaps between academia, industry, clinical practice, government, and community. We create training, networking, and collaboration opportunities for post-secondary students and early career professionals in any field related to health innovation.
Through our experimental process, we host events that emphasize the value of collaboration across traditional boundaries while providing the platform to do so. Interdisciplinary problem solving and effective knowledge translation methods are core elements of these experiments.
