Current and Recent Projects

Many OCIP projects start as a ‘scoping’ project – a short, structured engagement that pairs a business with academic experts and student facilitators to define project goals and parameters.

Toronto Collaboration Platform (TOCP) 

Toronto Collaboration Platform (TOCP) is a partnership between the City of Toronto, CivicLabTOeCampusOntario, and eight of Toronto’s higher education institutions (HEIs). Together, this group uses the expertise in each organization to collaborate on research and development projects to support Toronto’s communities, economy and post-COVID-19 recovery efforts. View TOCP projects at
