The Municipal Innovation Exchange (MIX) will be a new virtual centre of excellence that will create better public services and improve how municipal governments serve their citizens, partners and the business community. The MIX is based on the success of the City of Guelph’s ground-breaking Civic Accelerator model and MaRS Discovery District’s Procurement by Co-Design health innovation project. This three-year multi-partner, multi-city initiative will make municipal innovation processes more accessible for entrepreneurs, startups and other businesses through an open process.
We’re looking for a change agent to be our Municipal Innovation Exchange (MIX) Program Manager with the Strategy, Innovation and Intergovernmental Services division of the Office of the CAO. Reporting to the Manager, Corporate & Community Strategic Initiatives, you’ll manage this multi-year project and bring the MIX to life. You’ll be working with remarkable teams at MaRS Discovery District, the Guelph Lab and a network of partners to support three Ontario municipalities to successfully complete two rounds of innovation procurement, write the playbook and inspire others to follow.
The MIX Program Manager will be an innovator in their field, have a track record for bringing complex projects to life and be generous collaborator with the drive and experience to navigate the municipal sector and the innovation economy.
