Social Innovation

Social enterprises provide inspiring examples of creativity, resourcefulness, and good citizenship and are therefore a valuable part of our economy.

Enterprises that focus on combining social and financial outcomes are known as social enterprises, and in 2013, the Province amended legislation to create a new hybrid corporation type to recognize them: The Community Contribution Company. These enterprises provide inspiring examples of creativity, resourcefulness, and good citizenship, and are therefore a valuable part of our economy.

The Province is working to promote the combination of positive social and financial outcomes through:

  • Launch of the new HubcapBC.ca, an online social innovation community where users can connect with one another, share resources and learn about new projects.
  • Promote further issuance of Green Bonds by public-private partnerships to finance social infrastructure in the province.
