The eighth annual Social Finance Forum is a month away and tickets are selling fast. We’re so excited to present this year’s conference to you. The speakers and content have been carefully curated to cover all aspects of the impact investment space, and this year we’re doing something new. We’re giving you the choice to register for just one day of the conference or for the full two-day event. Here’s how the two days are planned out.

Day 1: The first day of the Social Finance Forum will consist of high-level discussions about impact investment opportunities and challenges, alongside real-life examples from sectors including energy, healthcare, education and real estate. We’ll also have a global stream where you’ll hear from big financial institutions, learn about United Nations opportunities and find out about impact investing in emerging markets. The day will end with a networking reception where you will have the opportunity to network with conference attendees and speakers.

Day 2: The second day of the Social Finance Forum will cover the nuts and bolts of impact investing. Whether you’re just entering the impact investing industry or have long been active in this space, you’ll find a session to suit your needs. There will be four streams happening at the same time, so make sure to check out the Social Finance Forum website for descriptions of the sessions and a list of speakers.

In addition to the two full days of programming, there will also be opportunities for you to network with peers. Twenty RBC-sponsored impact entrepreneurs will be flying in from around Canada and you’ll have the opportunity to meet and greet them. Plus, the Trico Charitable Foundation will be awarding a $50,000 Social Enterprise Award.

We look forward to having you join us for two banner days in social finance and impact investing. Once you’ve registered, we’ll email you your ticket and we’ll also keep you posted on forum news as the event gets closer. If you like, you’ll also be able to use our handy scheduling tool to pre-register for sessions and meet other attendees.
