Making the World a Better Place

Welcome to Rain It In!

Rain It In is a non-profit corporation and annual challenge where post-secondary students in Ontario are invited to collaborate in teams to solve a real world problem affecting our communities.


Teams will create innovative solutions that will mitigate the impacts of intense rainfall events, with assistance to implement their innovation in their community.

The Problem

The Impact of Climate Change

Climate change has increased the frequency and intensity of historically uncommon rainfall events. The flooding caused by these severe downpours causes issues such as:


  • Untreated wastewater to discharge or spill into our water bodies
  • Sewage back-ups into our homes and businesses
  • Damage to our infrastructure
  • The safety of the public to be put at risk
  • Pollutants including oil, lawn fertilizers, and animal waste to wash into our waterways
  • Beach closures

The Competition

Challenge your students to imagine new possibilities

Rain It In is a competition that encourages students to innovate in areas focusing on severe storms and risks of increased flooding. Teams will submit a written report and further present their work to a panel of industry experts. Following the competition, teams will receive further support and resources to bring their projects to life.
