Report from Canada’s first Social Finance Summit now available

Canada’s first national conversation on social finance with the mainstream financial industry was held in Toronto on October 15, 2007, building upon a number of successful forums held from 2004 – 2006 in Vancouver on innovations in social finance. Over 80 participants from the traditional finance and social finance sectors, academia, federal and provincial governments, funders, credit unions and co-operatives attended the Forum hosted by ‘Causeway’, a national collaborative working on effective pathways for financial investment in public benefit. They came to learn about Canadian and global best practices and success stores in social finance and the challenges and opportunities for scaling up social finance nationally.
