Social Innovation and Social Finance:  Are We Asking the Right Questions? 
Last fall, the Government of Canada created an $800M Social Finance Fund to support innovative solutions to persistent and complex social issues. But what does do social innovation and social finance really mean, and how can they help your community? This session will highlight the opportunities available for social purpose organizations and communities and discuss what it will take for social innovation and social finance to work for everyone.
L’innovation sociale et la finance sociale : posons-nous les bonnes questions?
L’automne dernier, le gouvernement du Canada a créé un Fonds de finance sociale de 800 M$ afin de soutenir des solutions innovantes à des enjeux sociaux complexes. Mais que signifient réellement l’innovation sociale et la finance sociale et comment peuvent-ils aider votre communauté? Cette séance présentera les opportunités disponibles pour les organisations à vocation sociale et les communautés et discutera de ce qui sera nécessaire pour que l’innovation sociale et la finance sociale fonctionnent pour tous.
