In Canada, Social Enterprise is expanding at an amazing trajectory. Several years ago a fledging discussion on the periphery of the non-profit, business and government sectors began at the first Canadian Social Enterprise Conference in 2004. Today social enterprise is a significant component of the efforts and innovation being used across the country to address complex social and economic issues in communities.
The main outcomes for the event were the quality of the discussions on Skills Building, Social Finance, Indigenous Social Enterprise, Collaboration, Policy and Research, and Social Innovation.
