Webinar Language: English
The CICan Webinar Series is for CICan Members Only
CICan is pushing the boundaries of social innovation and impact investing by implementing the first social finance project of its kind in Canada for the Government of Canada. With the goal to generate private investment for a public good, CICan will leverage the principles of social finance through a Social Impact Bond (SIB) mechanism by raising upfront capital from private investors looking for a social and financial return, also known as ‘double bottom-line investing’.
Learn about this collaborative partnership project between the federal government, led by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC); CICan as the project Intermediary; Douglas College (BC), Saskatchewan Polytechnic (SK), Confederation College (ON), and Collège Lionel-Groulx (QC) as the pilot’s College Service Delivery Partners; private investors; and, the Social Research and Development Corporation as an independent assessor.
