4th Annual Health Innovation Challenge launched today

The 4th annual Health Innovation Challenge launched today, and we're challenging students across the country to find innovative practices in Canadian health care, and show us how they are working. We are asking students to seek out practices, programs, policies or services that inspire them, and that they think might inspire the future of health care in Canada, and share them in an essay format.

We’re offering cash prizes for top entries, as well as the opportunity to intern at the Health Council of Canada and have your work published on our website.

Here's the challenge - prepare a written submission of up to 2,500 words (plus an abstract) answering this question:
What new innovations in health care are having a positive impact in Canada? Identify and describe an innovative practice that is improving health outcomes, and tell us why it is working. 

Submissions will be accepted from individuals or teams of maximum three students registered at a Canadian college or university (all levels of students are eligible, from undergraduate to PHD).

Need inspiration? Check out last year's winners here. In the next few weeks, we'll be posting blogs from two winners who are currently interning at the Health Council as part of their prize.

For more information and to download the full guidelines, visit Still have questions? Visit us on facebook at and post your question there, or email us at

Good luck, we can't wait to see what you come up with this year!
