Looking forward to 2021!

Everyone here at the MIS wishes you a restful holiday season.
Recharge, unwind and take care of yourself and your loved ones.

Please note that our offices (both physical and virtual!) will be closed from Monday, December 21, 2020 to January 1, 2021.

“Let’s be frank, this year has been a trying one and we won’t be sorry to turn the page on 2020 altogether.
But it has nonetheless succeeded in highlighting and revealing great wonders. To name a few: the strength of the social capital that has emerged and asserted itself since the beginning of the pandemic; the solidarity and resilience of communities that have been vectors of creativity and innovation; and the generosity of the social impact and innovation ecosystem. This year, marked by the pandemic, has certainly shown us the full scope of the collective will that seeks to rethink how we live together. The socio-ecological transition has begun, and the time is right to accelerate it.

Thank you for your wholehearted commitment, your openness and your collaborative spirit
which drive us here at the MIS on a daily basis. 

Take care of yourself and your loved ones. Happy Holidays to all!”

Patrick Dubé, Executive Director at MIS
