Do you want to create a space to celebrate impact companies and social organizations? Do you want to raise awareness about who they are, what they do and how they work? So get involved in Ontario Impact Week, taking place for the first time this year from Nov. 6 to 10, 2023.
Impact Week is an opportunity to introduce impact businesses and social purpose organizations (SPOs) to the public and decision-makers to raise awareness of their role and the economic and social value they bring to our communities.
Buy Social Canada defines social enterprises (impact businesses) as companies that sell goods and services, integrate a social, cultural or environmental objective into their activity, and reinvest the majority of their profits in their social mission.
The Canadian government defines SPOs as charities, non-profit organizations, social enterprises, cooperatives and businesses with a social mission.
All play an important role in solving socio-economic and environmental problems and have a significant impact on the economy. By their very nature, they actively participate in advancing the United Nations’ Agenda 2030 and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
We want to celebrate these players and showcase their activities!
