Creating the nou New Brunswick


How might we ensure everyone has a place to sleep at night? How might we make newcomers to New Brunswick feel at home? How might we re-design New Brunswick’s food system, starting in our own backyards? New Brunswick’s greatest challenges are complex and require systems change. NouLAB was created to provide the place and process to work collaboratively on these challenges, designing solutions together, writing the narrative for the new New Brunswick.


NouLAB is New Brunswick’s public and social innovation lab. We help the public and innovators act together to address our most pressing social, environmental, and economic challenges. By connecting change agents from across sectors, convening them around pressing issues, and facilitating their journey to deep change, NouLAB is making the change process smarter. NouLAB is a partnership between the Pond-Deshpande Centre, NB Social Policy Research Network, and NB Non-Profit Housing, with support from the GovLab, MaRD Solutions Lab, and the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation.
