On May 4th, 2019, 15 schools gathered in Toronto for the third Canadian edition of Map the System, organized by the Institute for Community Prosperity, in partnership with the McConnell Foundation’s RECODE Initiative, the Trico Charitable Foundation and the Skoll Centre. Congratulations goes out to MRU, SFU, and U of T for advancing to the Global Final hosted at Oxford University! Originally, the plan was to send two teams, but ultimately three teams were deemed worthy by the judges so the three teams get to go to the Oxford finals again!
