Champions for an inclusive and sustainable economy

In Quebec and some European countries, nonprofits and social enterprises make up such a large part of the economy they are recognized as their own economic sector. With Ontario communities facing major issues like precarious work, growing inequality, and climate change, how can the nonprofit sector re-invent local economies and keep more wealth in communities? Hear inspiring real-world examples of how nonprofits use their collective clout to spark profound changes in economies, providing sustainable livelihoods and shifting to economic models that include everyone. Add your ideas to scale up this game-changing movement.

Speaker: To be announced.

Social innovation and social finance: nonprofits steering a strategic approach

A federal social innovation and social finance strategy is in the works for the 2018 federal budget and beyond. This will include social enterprise and public procurement, and potential changes to how the sector can earn income. Get a first-hand look at the draft strategy and respond directly. What happens federally may influence what happens at the provincial level, so this is a key opportunity for the nonprofit sector to provide strategic input.

Speaker: David Lepage, Buy Social Canada, and steering group member of the Social Innovation and Social Finance Strategy

Building a pensions-savvy nonprofit sector

Nonprofit workers and employers will need strong pensions literacy to make good decisions about supporting retirement income security in our sector. We'll also need literacy as a foundation to participate meaningfully and work together in building a sector-driven pension plan. Learn more about these essential building blocks and explore next steps in a pension plan for Ontario's nonprofit sector.

Speaker: Michael Kainer, Co-Chair, ONN Pensions Task Force and retired lawyer
