On June 25, join our free webinar presented by Imagine Canada to learn more about social finance.

There is growing interest in social finance from government policymakers who see it as a tool for scaling innovative solutions to complex social and environmental challenges. For not-for-profits, social finance offers a new source of capital that could allow them to diversify their revenue streams and become more resilient in an increasingly precarious funding environment.

While social finance could have a transformative impact on the funding and financial landscape, relatively little is understood about its implications for charities. This webinar presents the results of a national survey of over 1,000 registered charities undertaken by Imagine Canada to better understand charities’ current readiness to participate in Canada’s growing social finance market.

What’s a webinar?

Think of a webinar as a way to attend a conference without leaving your workplace or home. Using your computer and telephone, you can hear a presentation (like a conference call) and also see the presenter’s slides (watching over an internet connection). You won’t be able to see the presenter, or others attending the program — and they won’t be able to see you. You will be able to ask questions – the webinar can be as interactive as you want to make it. The webinar will also be recorded and made available to you after the session, so there’s no need for frantic note-taking!
