CILAR’s Top 20 Aspiring Innovators of the Year 2022

The Aspiring Innovator Award is a spotlight for our country’s most innovative individuals from diverse backgrounds who have spearheaded impact and innovation across the country. From entrepreneurs, trailblazers, corporate leaders and aspiring future leaders, there’s no doubt that Canada has a diversity advantage - it’s time to spotlight and unlock its full potential.

With the impacts of COVID-19 disproportionately impacting the Black-led business community, CILAR recognizes the importance of responding to urgent community needs, while taking a long-term approach to building pathways to greater business sustainability. CILAR and it’s partners, Pitch Better and Black Opportunity Fund will provide cash grants in response to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 on Canada’s Black-led business community.
