Social enterprise and social venture
Vancity invests in Social Enterprises and Social Ventures through our high impact lending and investment programs. We support successful social enterprises by providing products, programs and services to help enterprises grow - from early planning, to start-up and launch, right through to sustainability and expansion.
By investing in social enterprises we are supporting not-for-profits, co-operatives and mission-based for-profits, including social enterprises or community owned businesses led by First Nation/Métis government organizations.
We’re interested in organizations with a mission focused on social, environmental, economic or cultural impact. This can include the delivery of products or services to meet a mission; the provision of local employment or jobs for individuals facing barriers to employment; or generating revenues in support of a not-for-profit operation.
