BC Social Venture Sector Labour Market Study, 2015
Social ventures play an important role in the political and
economic landscape of British Columbia. They operate between
the private and public sectors through a broad range of
community, not-for-profit, and business activities that create social
or environmental value in support of community regeneration,
sustainable growth, more inclusive wealth creation, and active
citizenship, for example.

challenges facing social ventures and offers recommendations on
the actions needed to facilitate further development of the sector
across the province. Read more>
