CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

How can the federal government make it easier for social enterprises to participate in bids for government contracts to provide goods and services?  How should we assess the social impact of the work of these organizations?

    I am starting to see more governments and grant making organizations opening their applications to social enterprises. I also feel that Government of Canada could put together an accreditation program similar to or in association with B Corp. (benevolent corporation) and a way to ensure there is a social purpose at the centre of the company that may be applying for a grant.

    Using Inclusive Supply Chain, the Federal Government as Provincial Governments can play a vital role helping social enterprises to grow just doing business as usual. Instead of purchasing from a regular vendor, use a vendor that has a social mission instead. It will save money that are being spent in social programs that are not bringing effective results.
