The Government of Canada, private investors, and colleges and institutes are pushing the boundaries of social innovation and impact investing by implementing the first social finance project of its kind in Canada.

“The Catherine Donnelly Foundation is proud to be a formative part of this innovative venture, which is expanding the frontier of Social Finance in Canada. The Foundation believes a just, sustainable and equitable future is possible if Canadians deliberately wield the power of our capital as a force for good.” – Jason Dudek, Outgoing Board Chair, the Catherine Donnelly Foundation
