The Community Social Planning Council of Greater Victoria and the Vancouver Island Social Innovation Zone would like to invite you to participate in the Vancouver Island Social Finance Forum consisting of key stakeholders from the social finance investment sector.
Social finance is a growing practice across the globe that includes community investing, microfinance, social impact bonds, community loan funds for affordable housing and local sustainable businesses. Outcome-based philanthropic program-related investments sometimes referred to as venture philanthropy, also fall under the umbrella of social finance. These approaches to investment share the twin focus of stimulating positive social and environmental returns for investors and communities.
This is an opportunity to discuss the current state of impact investing on Vancouver Island designed for those involved to connect and share their thoughts.
