Citizenship is at the heart of what we do

About Action Lab

The Action Lab is a social enterprise of Skills Society; an internationally recognized leader in social innovation and one of the largest disability service organizations in Edmonton. The Action Lab experience promotes creative problem solving, offers tools to help tap into collective wisdom and helps people prototype solutions to challenges they are working on.

Revenue from the Action Lab supports the employment of people with disabilities, innovative social change initiatives of Skills Society and subsidizes community groups who can’t afford the full fee.

Check out Articles in the News and Videos of the Keynote Speeches at the launch of Action Lab with Mayor Iveson and MLA David Shepherd, Tim Draimin, Mark Cabaj and Guests.
