- CSPC releases new resources on Community Social Financing
The Community Social Planning Council has a new resource on the business and public policy case for Community Investment Funds. A policy brief published today is available on our website. The brief outlines the experience in other places with similar community investment opportunities that offer a social and economic return. Recommendations are made in the brief, calling on the BC Government to introduce similar tax incentives and enabling regulations as exist in places like Nova Scotia.
Policy Brief: Enabling Community Investment
COMING SOON: We are preparing a “How-To” guide for community stakeholders interested in exploring this model. Please check out our What’s New page on our website in June.
Don't forget to register for our AGM in on September 24th. Our Keynote speaker will be Rankin MacSween, President of New Dawn Enterprises, the longest-running Community Investment Fund and Community Economic Development Corporation in Canada.
