Social Enterprise Uncovered: A Profile of the SE Sector in Ottawa

In October 2015, the Centre for Innovative Social Enterprise Development wanted to get a clear snapshot of the social enterprise sector in Ottawa. With this in mind, a sector survey was distributed to learn more about the organizations working in this area.

The results are in!  The social enterprise sector in Ottawa has come a long way. Only a few years ago the CISED team could identify a few dozen social enterprises; now there are over 150 known social enterprises in the city - and they are doing some exciting work.
