The Schlegel Centre is partnering with the Waterloo Region Immigration Partnership and other centres and departments at Laurier to improve settlement and inclusion services in the Region of Waterloo. (Read more about the full project.) As part of this larger initiative, we are facilitating a 'design lab' to bring together service providers, new Canadians, students and faculty to co-create and test new and innovative solutions to improve settlement outcomes.

A design lab, or innovation lab, is a space for information sharing, creativity and building new knowledge. Design labs apply an intentional process to develop and test new ideas.
