Social Enterprise Ontario
There are currently two enp programs operating in Ontario. Based out of the Toronto Enterprise Fund, Enterprising Non-Profits Toronto (enp-TO) is a grant funding initiative to seed and support social enterprise in the Greater Toronto Area.
The Centre for Innovative Social Enterprise Development (CISED) is the enp partner in Ottawa. CISED’s goal is to create a continuum of support for social enterprise in the city of Ottawa including access to technical expertise, financing, learning communities, training, and cross-sector partnerships.
