Welcome to St Paul & District Innovation Lab the hub for innovation

St Paul & District Innovation Lab

A joint venture of SPDSS with Portage college

St Paul & District Innovation Lab is a creative and innovative playground that provides St. Paul & District residents with a space where multidisciplinary teams can collaborate on ideas proposed by local businesses, industry, and the community. With 36% of our population aged over 50, there is much that our community can gain from the experience of older adults. 

The lab will serve as a safe space where older Adults can participate in activities, fostering intergenerational communication and a sense of scientific community between youth and older Adults. Additionally, the lab will offer opportunities for younger adults to learn computer science, which will enable them to provide training and support to our elders’ community.

St Paul District Innovation lab will open its doors in april 2023
