Harnessing the power of social finance: Canadians respond to the National Call for Concepts for Social Finance

The Report, Harnessing the Power of Social Finance, highlights the benefits of social finance and social innovation in creating new financial tools and partnerships to broaden the impact of existing programs or support new initiatives. It profiles 15 concepts that represent a wide-range of the proposals received and includes information on national and international perspectives. Many of the proposals support at-risk youth, the unemployed, people with disabilities and seniors. Various financial tools were suggested, including social impact bonds, pay-for-performance contracts, investment funds and social enterprises.
