3ci is working with the Ontario government and community organizations to develop an impact measurement standard for Ontario Social Enterprises.

Social enterprises are organizations that use business strategies to achieve a social or environmental impact. While generating revenues from the sale of goods and services, social enterprises also expressly intent to create positive outcomes, and measure their results. As the business grows, the social impact grows.

An impact measurement and reporting standard is a common way for Ontario Social Enterprises to understand and communicate the effects they have on society, community and the environment.

We’d like your views on the report and to learn from you what our next steps should be as we move forward.

Join one of our four convenings. Convenings will include a brief presentation on the recommendations and two interactive exercises to help the Social Enterprise community understand the recommendations and to help us assess next steps related to the sustainable development goals.

For more on this and to access registration for the four convenings (Ottawa, Thunder Bay, Toronto and London), please see here.
