Social Innovation and Social Finance Strategy Co-Creation Steering Group

From Employment and Social Development Canada

Selected from 189 eligible applications from across the country, the Social Innovation and Social Finance Steering Group brings together 16 passionate and diverse leaders, practitioners and experts from multiple fields, including the community, philanthropic, financial and research sectors.

The Steering Group will be responsible for co-developing a Social Innovation and Social Finance Strategy with the Government of Canada.

For more information about the Steering Group members, please consult:

Members of the Steering Group will work to define the priorities the Strategy will address. By drawing on the broad range of expertise, know-how and ideas of its members, and through consultation and engagement activities, the Group will begin developing policy measures to advance social innovation and social finance in Canada.

Steering Group members will be asked to share their perspectives on three key challenges. These issues have been raised during discussions led by stakeholders on social innovation and social finance in recent years:

  • the skills and capacity of community organizations and governments to pursue social innovation and social finance, including their capacity to measure social outcomes and impact;
  • federal laws, regulations and policies that have an impact on the ability of community organizations to participate in social innovation and social finance initiatives; and
  • access to the capital needed to fund, replicate and expand the reach of social innovation and social finance projects.
