INTERVIEW: Karina Gould, Canada’s Minister of Families, Children and Social Development shares her learnings and aspirations for Canada’s new Social Finance Fund

“We are doing something totally new, totally innovative that the government of Canada has not done before.”

Why It Matters

Future of Good’s CEO and Publisher Vinod Rajasekaran sits down with Canada’s Minister of Families, Children and Social Development to discuss how the Social Finance Fund will transform the country’s social finance ecosystem, how will the fund centre social equity, and how those investments can be de-risked going forward.

VINOD RAJASEKARAN: Welcome, Minister Gould. Thank you so much for joining us. Really excited to have this conversation with you about the launch of the Social Finance Fund, especially following the Social Finance Forum and your energizing opening remarks. Just to give you a quick sense of it, we had over 750 attendees from coast to coast to coast and hosted about 22 sessions with about 80 speakers. But why don’t you give us a sense of what the vision is for the Social Finance Fund?
