Across the province, social enterprises are reducing poverty, protecting the environment, and building stronger communities – all while creating jobs, growing revenues, and attracting investment capital. Ontario is home to approximately 10,000 social enterprises, in the fields of inclusive employment, education, health, and environmental sustainability.
To accelerate the growth of the social enterprise sector, we work with governments of all jurisdictions to support SE's in 3 key areas:
1. Equipping social enterprises with solid business fundamentals. Building a strong foundation to serve the communities of today and tomorrow.
2. Connecting social enterprises to markets and capital to grow and scale. Unlocking new markets and capital to help maximize their potential.
3. Demonstrating the value of social enterprise and social finance. Promoting their potential to investors, government, and communities.
