Launched in 2009, the Health Innovation Challenge asked university and college students from across the country to find innovative practices in Canadian health care, and tell us why they are working. Our goal was to showcase a new generation of leaders in health by sharing innovations that could lead the way in the future.
Students were asked to produce a written submission telling us how they see an innovation shaping health care through a practice, program, service or policy. Students had the option of submitting entries either individually or as a group.
Winners received a cash prize and had their work featured on the Health Council of Canada's website, Health Innovation Portal and social media networks, and also had the chance to apply for a summer internship with the Health Council in Toronto.
