Canadian Conference on Social Enterprise - November 2004

The Canadian Conference on Social Enterprise (CCSE) is currently canvassing presenters for its inaugural conference, November 15 -17, 2004 at the Marriot Eaton Centre in Toronto.

Will you be there??

The goals of the conference are:

  • To increase interest in developing and supporting social enterprises in the non-profit and funding community in Canada.

  • To develop our understanding of social enterprise and its value as a new business model for non-profits and as a mechanism for empowering marginalized populations and achieving sustainable community economic development.

  • To provide delegates from all sectors: social entrepreneurs, government representatives, and philanthropic organizations with valuable content through keynote presentations, panel discussions, workshops, site visits, networking opportunities and a showcase of social enterprises.

  • To successfully launch the Canadian Conference on Social Enterprise (CCSE) as a viable national forum for the exchange of ideas and best practices in the emerging and exciting field of social enterprise.

The organizers expect 400 delegates from social enterprises, non-profit organizations, funders, investors, government agencies and the private sector.

Here are the details, per the CCSE "Request for Proposals for Session Presenters".

The inaugural theme, "Social Enterprise: The Business of Change," promises to highlight social enterprise as an emerging model and innovative strategy for sustainability of organizations and/or programs. There will be lively debate about scope and benefits of social enterprise and the challenges faced by both social entrepreneurs and granting agencies.
