Patterns and Trends, is an overview of several broad trends and related social innovations that are, for the most part, Canadian. The patterns to be observed in the interplay between intervention and complex systems constitute a state of “continuous social innovation.” In the Principles section, we shift focus to outline three large-scale initiatives: in the environmental arena, the Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement; in the economic domain, the ALLIES program for skilled immigrants; and in the social sphere, the ArtsSmarts program. From these we propose 12 principles that shape thinking and guide strategy around social innovation. Finally, in the Practice section, we briefly review some new technological, social, and organizational development tools that are emerging to support this work.
