Are you looking for a rewarding experience that showcases your entrepreneurial skills? Join the Solutions Lab to develop a business idea which will help solve a problem facing our community. You can come with an idea or join a team with an existing idea! The teams will be formed on the first day of the program, and each participant will receive an award of $525 upon completion. This program is open to undergraduate students from all faculties.

This year, the eHub has partnered with the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Law to host our Solutions Lab. The theme this year will be Access to Justice, which aims to make the legal system more accessible to Canadians. How can we leverage emerging technology and innovation to bridge the current Access to Justice gap? Working in teams, build a business case for a solution that will make legal assistance more accessible to those that need it.


Students must complete a total of 40 hours of work on their project to complete the program and receive the final award of $525.
