United Way of London & Middlesex, Richard Ivey School of Business and Pillar Nonprofit Network have partnered to generate capacity for social enterprise and evaluate it as a tool to create social change.
The Social Enterprise for Sustainable Communities initiative provides a cycle of learning to social entrepreneurs that explores, incubates and validates social enterprises, creating more self sufficient, resilient and sustainable communities. Through collaboration with community partners in Ottawa, London and Sarnia, the program is working to establish a localized framework that will stimulate and support innovative social enterprise. Experiences are shared across the province, enabling the integration of social enterprise into the fabric of local economies.
