Canadian Conference on Social Enterprise 2017

The Social Enterprise Council of Canada, in partnership with CCEDNET Manitoba, is pleased to announce the sixth national conference on social enterprise to be held in Winnipeg from May 10-12, 2017.

CCSE 2017: A National Learning Exchange

May 10-12, 2017. Early bird registration is now open until April 7.

The conference is designed to be practitioner-led and will include a full day of “deep dive” discussions on specific social enterprise activities (construction, employment of marginalized, catering, arts and culture, environment, and more). These curated sessions will be held off-site, and will be hosted by local social enterprises in the Winnipeg region. This is an unprecedented way to meet colleagues from across the country working on social missions similar to yours.

There will also be a day of activities hosted at the University of Winnipeg to discuss practical issues faced by social enterprises across the country with respect to policies, social purchasing, taxation, international perspectives, and more.

The Social Enterprise Council of Canada is committed to making this event affordable, and consequently we’ve set early bird registration rates at only $250 (regular tickets will be $350). Furthermore, we are seeking to find a range of accommodation options (from $50/night-$150/night) to encourage the participation of social entrepreneurs from across the country.

So register now for May 10-12, 2017 to attend CCSE2017. Early bird rates are in effect until April 7, 2017.
