Canada’s Social Impact Organizations Celebrated with Biggest Prize Package Ever
Over $200,000 in Prizes Available!

Created by the Trico Charitable Foundation in 2011, the biennial Social EnterPrize Awards celebrate Canadian social enterprises that demonstrate best practices, impact and innovation. Social enterprises are organizations, for-profit or not-for-profit, that blend financial success and social impact by using markets to solve social problems.

“The Social EnterPrize celebrates Canada’s best and brightest in what may well be the most powerful idea of our time, that we can use markets to directly solve the biggest social problems facing the world,” said Dan Overall, Director of Collaboration and Innovation at the Trico Charitable Foundation.

The 2015 edition of the Social EnterPrize will honour four of Canada’s leading social enterprises. Each of the recipients will receive:

  • $25,000 prize money
  • $5,000 in consulting services from the Business Development Bank of Canada
  • A video profile
  • In-depth profile in a case-study done by a Canadian post-secondary institution
  • Travel, accommodation and registration for Canada’s leading social finance gathering, the Social Finance Forum, in Toronto November 12-13, 2015
  • Participation in a 2015 Social Enterprize recipients’ dinner with four of Canada’s leading social finance experts (the private dinner will be held at the Social Finance Forum, in Toronto November 12-13, 2015).

The awards will be formally presented during a luncheon on November 12, 2015 at the Social Finance Forum in Toronto.
