Impakt’s non-profit affiliate Impakt Labs conducts social issue research and incubates innovative solutions to social problems.
Impakt Lab’s inaugural project is exploring the stories of Canada’s Jewish tailors that came from displaced persons camps in 1948 in Europe. Who were the tailors? Where did they come from? What was the impact of The Tailor Project on their lives and the lives of their families? How was the Jewish and broader community in Canada affected by this initiative? In what was has The Tailor Project helped to inform Canada’s approach to supporting other refugee groups. For the first time, the questions surrounding this vitally important but largely unknown episode in Canada’s history will be answered.
