Timeline and Launch Event
The findings of the Task Force on Social Finance will be communicated to the public in a final report released before the end of the year. This is just the beginning of a new stage for social finance in Canada. It is anticipated that following the release of the report, there will be a number of informational and strategic workshops and working groups formed to facilitate cross-sectoral discussion and implementation of the recommendations.
To celebrate the launch of the final report, Social Innovation Generation in partnership with MaRS Discovery District will be hosting a reception on the evening of Tuesday, November 30th. Task Force members will outline the opportunities where financial institutions, foundations and government can participate in building a market for impact investing in Canada. Attendees will be introduced to current examples of social finance at work from the perspective of Canadian social entrepreneurs and the Rockefeller Foundation's initiative on Impact Investing.
When: Tuesday Nov 30th, 5:30pm - 7:30pm
Where: MaRS Discovery District Main Floor Atrium
