Canada supports social finance and innovation
Posted by: Bruce Dewar
The Government of Canada tabled its Economic Action Plan 2014 yesterday, which focused on supporting jobs, growth, families and communities. In the plan, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty recognized the powerful role social finance can play to meet the social and economic needs of Canadians. We congratulate Minister Flaherty on his government’s continues support of social finance and social innovation.
As you know, LIFT works with community-based organizations to support programs that help people find jobs, improve their education, and update their skills, all with the underlying purpose to help local businesses find the qualified employees they need. We believe that through innovation comes the tools to create lasting social and economic change. We look forward to further leadership from the Government of Canada as social finance and social innovation continue to strengthen our country’s social and economic success.
