The Fourth Canadian Conference on Social Enterprise

November 20-22, 2011
Halifax, Nova Scotia


Join hundreds of experienced and prospective social enterprise practitioners from across Canada to:

  • Learn about the difference that social enterprise makes for communities and how to do it;
  • Share your experience and ideas with other social enterprisers and supporters;
  • Network with social enterprise practitioners, supporters, funders, and government officials;
  • Act on your questions, ideas or new knowledge – and make a difference in a community you care about

The Conference is made up of intensive day-long and half-day training sessions. These training sessions will cover the following themes: introduction to social enterprise, demonstrating value, governance for social enterprise, business planning skills, marketing, financial analysis, social enterprise franchising, supporting and building social enterprise in Canada.

The Social Enterprise Angels Competition will also be hosted at the Conference. If you have a social enterprise or are planning one in Atlantic Canada, apply and compete for a chance to win a cash prize to be used toward the start-up, growth or strengthening of your enterprise.
