The Social Enterprise Council of Canada broadly defines a social enterprise as: "enterprises that are run like businesses, producing goods and services for the market economy, but they manage their operations and redirect their surpluses in pursuit of social and community goals." Social enterprises are owned and operated by charities, non-profit organizations or non-share cooperatives. The goals of the enterprise could be environmental, employment, arts and culture,
or to generate revenue for the parent organization.

Ethel Côté is a social enterprise practitioner and consultant at the Canadian Centre for Community Renewal (CCRC) with 30 years of experience fostering the development and implementation of cooperatives and social enterprises in Canada and internationally. Ethel will provide practical information, insight and resources on social enterprise development as well as address some of the challenges and opportunities experienced by non-profit organizations, municipalities and social entrepreneurs when starting and operating a social enterprise. The webinar discussion will highlight steps for developing a social enterprise and provide best practices.
