About the Social Finance Call for Concepts

The Government will partner with organizations, businesses, and not-for-profit organizations around social innovation and social finance tools. Interested organizations are invited to submit their innovative ideas to help shape future social policy in Canada.
All interested individuals and organizations are invited to submit concepts for innovative solutions to issues facing Canadian communities. You do not need to submit a fully developed paper; simply “sketch out” your concept by completing the online questionnaire.
