In its report, "Mobilizing Private Capital for Public Good", The Canadian Task Force on Social Finance, set out seven key recommendations that Canada needs to undertake in parallel, to mobilize new sources of capital, create an enabling tax and regulatory environment, and build a pipe-line of investment-ready social enterprises.
In this webinar, Task Force members, Nancy Neamtan, President and Executive Director of The Chantier de l’économie sociale and Tim Brodhead, President and CEO of the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation take a close look at each recommendation.
This webinar will provide examples of social finance at work and update you on areas of activity since the launch of the Task Force. With this knowledge we will highlight ways Canada's community sector is moving towards diversifying its revenue base and ways your leadership can advance the Task Force recommendations in your community.
For example, a growing number of enterprising nonprofits, charities, co-operatives and social entrepreneurs are shaping the social finance landscape in Canada by building businesses and turning to private investors for the financing they need to launch and scale up innovative new programs that advance their public benefit mission.
