SHIFTING HABITS, PIONEERING NEW SOLUTIONS & RAISING HEALTHIER GENERATIONS
Sparking meaningful change in the lives of all Canadians is no small feat. It requires an inquisitive nature, an entrepreneurial attitude, a resolve to lead and the capacity to deliver. That’s why Vivo’s Research + Innovation area is central to the organization’s mission of Raising Healthier Generations.
Vivo partners with the nation’s brightest minds from a wide spectrum of sectors, including health, recreation, education and public policy. We're an idea incubator committed not only to serious inquiry but, more significantly, effective outcomes. Its mandate is to support the organization’s mission of Raising Healthier Generations, in conjunction with a network of like-minded organizations, both at home and across the nation.
Vivo’s platform is grounded in scalable solutions that are easily implemented and transportable to communities across the country. This enables us to be proactive and nimble, focusing on programs and services providing social imapct where and when they’re needed. We understand that big shifts start with small steps. But with the right support and opportunities, those shifts become a groundswell of positive change, resulting in dramatic improvements to the health of our nation and all its citizens.
THINKING BIG, ACTING BIG
Raising Healthier Generations is a long-term goal requiring participation from multiple public and private sector partners. The true impact will be measured in years and decades, but we know the time to act is now. The evidence is indisputable: what we do today will pay significant social and economic dividends well into the future.
We encourage you to champion healthier generations with us:
Most importantly, commit to making a positive change, no matter how small it may seem. Because healthier generations is a journey, not a destination!
