Social Venture Registry

What if there were a place that encouraged social investment, innovation and collaboration? Welcome to Ontario’s Social Venture Registry.

How do I use the registry?

  • Register your social venture
  • Read about organizations and the social and environmental benefits they are generating for Ontarians
  • Find other social venture leaders who are doing good in your industry
  • Find a social enterprise to fund or a social purpose business to invest in
  • Support social ventures by finding a supplier for a product or service you need

What’s a social venture?

“Social ventures” are both not-for-profit social enterprises and for-profit social-purpose businesses, since solutions to social problems are emerging in both sectors.

Still not sure about what constitutes a social venture or need help describing your organization’s mission, benefit, product or service?  We’ve profiled eight social ventures, including a mix of for-profit and not-for-profit organizations who operate in the following six sectors:

  1. Education
  2. Environmental protection
  3. Health care
  4. Social services
  5. Enabling services/technology
  6. Affordable housing
