Canada is turning 150 this year! The MapleShot is about being proud of who we are, bold in challenging who we want to become, and innovative in seeking the changes needed that will get us there.

We are a nation of problem-solvers, creative thinkers, innovative entrepreneurs. Focused on real change, this initiative is inviting Canadians – students and citizens – to dig deep and prove just how inventive, committed and exceptional we are in making positive changes in our communities and our nation.

Designed to inform, challenge and change how we perceive ourselves and how we can shape our future for the better, our goals are to deepen engagement, inspire action, and ultimately promote positive change through creativity and innovation.
