A 3-month Canadian tour, from St John's to Victoria, will begin soon to create a national structure around Fab Labs.

In order to contribute to the democratization and development of digital resources, knowledge and skills, the adventure Fab Labs Nation will soon be embarking on a three-month Canadian tour from coast to coast.

In caravans, representatives of the movement will visit already existing Fab Labs as well as other collaborative digital manufacturing spaces so that a national inter-structure adapted to the specificities of the different regions and connected to the global network led by the Fab Foundation emerges.

A place for exchanges and partnerships, the Fab Labs will then allow everyone to benefit from both local cutting-edge technologies and external knowledge and skills in the realization of their project. Through workshops and laboratories, this initiative will introduce the digital resources and tools available all over the world in a multitude of sectors such as health, entrepreneurship, education and many others.

The Fab Labs

Part of the open innovation movement (open Innovation) and wanting to be concrete tools for a smart city (Smart city), Fab Labs have collaborated for 15 years and are now more than 1200 in hundreds of cities around the world.

With us, this movement is essentially the initiative of Community, an organization that has supported the development of Fab Labs in Quebec for 6 years and has been working for 18 years to democratize access to technologies with a view to economic, cultural and social development.
