2017 Canadian Conference on Social Enterprise

CCSE 2017: A National Learning Exchange

May 10-12, 2017. Mark your calendars now.

We’re thrilled to announce that we will be partnering with the Social Enterprise Council of Canada to host the sixth national conference on social enterprise, to be held in Winnipeg from May 10-12, 2017.

The conference is designed to be practitioner-led and will include a full day of “deep dive” discussions on specific social enterprise activities (construction, employment of marginalized, catering, arts and culture, environment, and more). These curated sessions will be held off-site, and will be hosted by local social enterprises in the Winnipeg region. This is an unprecedented way to meet colleagues from across the country working on social missions similar to yours.

There will also be a day of activities hosted at the University of Winnipeg to discuss practical issues faced by social enterprises across the country with respect to policies, social purchasing, taxation, international perspectives, and more.

The Social Enterprise Council of Canada is committed to making this event affordable, and consequently they’ve set early bird registration rates at only $250 (regular tickets will be $350). Furthermore, we are seeking to find a range of accommodation options (from $50/night-$150/night) to encourage the participation of social entrepreneurs from across the country.

So mark your calendars now for May 10-12, 2017 to attend CCSE2017.

Registration and further details will be available by September, 2016. Please contact the SECC if you have questions. If you plan to attend the conference, you can also get a $25 discount on an annual membership to SECC.
