When I started writing for SocialFinance.ca, I had the intention to write about events unfolding in social enterprise within Western Canada. I’ve broadened my perspective since then, but I’m always looking for great news from the West that I can share. Today, I’m particularly excited to share the news that a new foundation in Calgary has committed itself to furthering the social entrepreneurship movement.
The Trico Charitable Foundation has announced three major initiatives to encourage and promote social entrepreneurship in Calgary, Alberta and across Canada. Keeping in mind the challenges and complexity of social enterprise development, the Foundation has partnered with a number of organizations to help spearhead interest and investment in social enterprise.
