Consultations on Social Innovation and Social Finance
November 10, 2017
OTTAWA: Jim Eglinski, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, is pleased to invite residents to participate in a consultation on social innovation and social finance.
The federal government made the commitment to develop a Social Innovation and Social Finance Strategy to find new innovative approaches that improve the well-being of Canadians and help communities address their most difficult problems.
To gather ideas from communities and regions across Canada, the Social Innovation and Social Finance Strategy Co-Creation Steering Group has launched an online consultation. Through consultation and engagement activities, its members will develop policy measures that put forward social innovation and social finance, and co‑develop a strategy with the Government of Canada.
The overall goal is to improve the lives of the most vulnerable Canadians, and help our communities and regions thrive and flourish in an inclusive and sustainable way. This means helping all Canadians access good jobs and homes, healthy food and strong social connections.
There are two ways you can provide your input:
- The online consultation gives you the chance to contribute to the conversation on the measures being considered. Visit the link: esdc-consultations.canada.ca/social-innovation.
- You can also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org share your input and ideas.
The deadline to participate is December 31, 2017.
“I encourage all communities, social purpose organizations, and business communities focused on social innovation to participate,” concluded MP Eglinski.
