The space for social enterprise and the social economy in Ontario is growing.

Community of Social Enterprise

The SEontario website is a community-driven showcase of social enterprise and the social economy in Ontario. The site’s primary roles are to:

  • Demonstrate the geographic scope and community impact across Ontario of SE through a showcase of case studies and living examples
  • Connect users to resources, including enterprise skills, measuring impact, policy issues, potential capital and social finance opportunities as well as regional, francophone and co-operative supports
  • Provide a geo-mapped database of nonprofit social enterprises (to be expanded to include social entrepreneurs and other social economy organizations)
  • Provide links to marketplaces for those wanting to purchase through SEs
  • Share an Ontario SE Events Calendar highlighting relevant webinars, educational opportunities and events
  • Profile the Ontario Social Economy Roundtable (OSER), including a historical narrative of the social economy in Ontario that helps provide context and celebrates SE achievements made in Ontario to date
  • Profile provincial initiatives, collaborations and projects that are learning about the value of social enterprise and social economy in their communities
  • Provides links among social economy work in regions of Ontario
  • Connect people to the latest news related to social enterprise in Ontario
