Please join MP Joyce Murray on January 20th for an MP Policy Café on Social Innovation and Social Finance in Canada hosted by the Vancouver Quadra Constituency Youth Council (CYC). This is a unique chance to listen, learn, contribute and let federal leaders hear about what matters to people in our Vancouver Quadra neighbourhoods.
Social innovation is about developing new solutions to social or economic challenges. This often drives collaboration across different levels of government, charities, the not-for-profit and private sectors in order to find solutions. Social finance also creates opportunities for private investors to finance projects that benefit society overall.
By using innovation as a tool, creative solutions to social challenges can serve Canadian communities now and into the future. Please visit https://www.canada.ca/en/employment-social-development/programs/social-innovation-social-finance/strategy.html
We value your ideas! Join this important discussion and share your thoughts. Explore options for helping the most vulnerable to contribute and share in the prosperity of their community and society.
Our policy cafés are “world café” format interactive events designed to stimulate conversation, and to seek input and creative ideas on key federal issues. A report of your recommendations will be submitted to the relevant ministers.
