Diverse, innovative, dynamic and competitive are just a few adjectives that could be used to describe the social enterprise sector in Manitoba. These businesses play a critical role in our local and provincial economies, but also fill fundamental gaps in our social security net. By providing training and employment opportunities, or serving cultural environmental missions, social enterprises are making Manitoba more sustainable, equitable and economically robust.
Manitobans have a rich history of finding innovative and collaborative solutions to community challenges. Social enterprises are one of the fastest growing approaches to building stronger local economies while serving important social mandates.
