NS Government Announces Framework for Advancing Social Enterprise

On Wednesday, April 12th the Government of Nova Scotia gave formal recognition to the thriving social enterprise sector in our province, releasing the official Framework for Advancing Social Enterprise in conjunction with SENNS's Sector Strategy. In doing so, they take a significant step forward in creating true prosperity across our province.

"This Provincial Framework and Sector Strategy represent the most progressive and well thought out social enterprise policy in the country, showing Nova Scotia’s position as a center of excellence for social enterprise development in Canada and marking the beginning of leveling the playing field for all business types. 
...
In every corner of our province you can see people and organizations building and running businesses that create social, cultural, and environmental value. This is social enterprise. It is not a new business model. It is not a fad. It is here to stay." - Cathy Deagle-Gammon, President, SENNS
