Co-op Roundtable for Open for Business (OFB) Process - Guelph

You are here

15 January, 2014

9:00am - 11:30am

Please join us at one of six regional community roundtables to have your say in contributing to a vibrant Social Enterprise Sector in Ontario.

Pillar Nonprofit Network, with the support of Ontario’s Ministry of Economic Development, Trade and Employment (MEDTE) will be hosting regional roundtables to gather information from social enterprise practitioners, intermediaries, investors and anyone else who is interested in both the nonprofit and for profit side of social business. This information will be used to report on pressing issues for the sector, including identifying  administrative and regulatory  burdens that may be preventing social enterprises from starting up and scaling up. The following points are the objectives of this process:

  1. To better understand the social enterprise sector and its priorities and have a coordinated approach
  2. To canvass the sector and  agree upon the issues that should be raised
  3. To identify priorities that meet the Open for Business (OFB) Roundtable criteria and set stage for official OFB Roundtable process*  
  4. To share knowledge, share solutions and have transparent exchanges

*The top priorities will be put forward to government in a formal OFB process. OFB roundtable criteria include zero cost to government, no new legislation and feasible within 60 days.

We’d love you to join us **with your laptop, tablet or smartphone** and be a part of this conversation to make our province a leader in social enterprise development. It is a great opportunity to engage and have your say.
