Ontario Government Supports Social Enterprise

The Ontario Government recently released Impact: A Social Enterprise Strategy for Ontario, a report that outlines Ontario’s thriving social enterprise sector and the government’s plans to support a new generation of social innovators.
A number of our grantees and partners were highlighted for their contribution to the social enterprise movement, including JUMP Math, Social Venture Connection (SVX) and The Centre for Social Innovation.
Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Economic Development, Trade and Employment stated “Our plan starts by making the growth of social enterprises easier by removing some of the barriers they face and making available social finance tools that connect them with investors who are interested in achieving a social return on investment, as well as a financial one”.
