You are here

19 November, 2014

1pm to 4pm
Visitor Information Centre

A social enterprise is a business that focuses on delivering social or charitable benefits, and any profits are reinvested to continue to support those goals. It can be an interesting model for a non-profit to use, one which comes with its own unique challenges and benefits. Participants in this workshop will come away with a deeper understanding of what a social enterprise is. They will also:

  • Learn when to use a social enterprise model
  • Understand the risks and challenges and how to best mitigate them
  • Gain tools to help assess if it would work for their non-profit
  • Find out about resources to support social enterprises

Facilitator: Wendy Keats, Co-operatives Enterprise Council of NB

Registration deadline is November 12th @ 5pm

Cost:  $30 (HST included) per participant
