Social Finance Opportunities for Calgary
Social finance has historical roots but is becoming increasingly relevant in our current economic climate. Across Canada, innovative ways of mobilizing money for social good are being explored.
How do we prepare Calgary to be able to leverage social finance tools?
- Social finance and impact investing,
- Cross-sectoral approaches to advancing social finance mechanisms, and
- Social finance tools, such as Social Impact Bonds, as a way of mobilizing money for poverty reduction.
