Mission & Purpose


Canada’s National Advisory Board aims to scale durable solutions to social problems by means of a vibrant social finance market. Mobilizing Private Capital for Public Good: Priorities for Canada, the Board’s 2014 report, highlighted policy obstacles to a vibrant market and suggested reforms to eliminate them. Though the Board is temporarily dormant, the Board’s members continue to champion Canada’s social finance potential and develop policy changes that could unleash it.
