Creativity and innovation are values we bring to all our projects. We believe in supporting original ideas, research and development, and fresh thinking that brings added value to our clients and communities. To that end, Stantec's Creativity & Innovation (C&I) Program nurtures the efforts of our people to think freely, try something new, connect with like-minded innovators within the company and beyond, and make a difference. Creative and innovative thinking is essential to our work, and a key differentiator we bring to our clients. We're proud to offer our people an outlet to strive for discovery, a safe place to take risks, and the leadership support to guide them along the way. Our C&I Program launched in 2016 and, since then, has supported and rewarded hundreds of innovators across our Company. The C&I Program has five parts: GREENLIGHT An internal grant program that awards anywhere from $10,000 to $100,000 to support the development of new ideas in their infancy. THE INNOVATION FORUM The C&I Program's signature event, this internal conference brings the leaders of our most innovative projects together in a forum that recognizes and celebrates innovation in action. THE VENTURE FUND An in-house venture capital program that supports business plans for new services and geographies that will deliver an acceptable return on investment. PUBLISH & SPEAK A program that rewards and recognizes our people for speaking at events attended by clients, or publishing articles in media likely to be read by clients. C&I WORKSHOPS On-request forums to explore innovation together with our clients. PROPOSAL LANGUAGE We're always looking to collaborate with our clients and communities. If you're interested in a C&I Workshop or other innovative partnership, please reach out to Stanis Smith, executive vice president, innovation, to discuss the world of opportunities we can create by putting our heads together. Creativity and innovation: It's part of what makes Stantec, Stantec. 13
