Thursday July 8 2021" Community-based ventures have been a strong part of the Canadian economy for more than a century and recent innovative practices have made the social enterprise sector a hot topic in national and international vistas.  The conference brings together practitioners, researchers, and community organizations, from home and afar, to discuss current practices, challenges, and innovations in advancing social entrepreneurship, economic development and community livelihoods.  

Directors of community organizations, social entrepreneurs, researchers, public policy makers, and people interested in community-based development, innovation, and entrepreneurship attend this popular biennial conference. As a conference attendee, you will hear from practitioners and researchers on community innovation, social enterprise, place-based development, and their effect on community health and economic development.
