"Not-For-Profits Making Profits: Legal Structures for Social Enterprises" was a presentation by Margaret Mason and Michael Blatchford (Bull, Housser & Tupper, LLP) at an event hosted by Enterprising Non-Profits (enp) on January 19, 2011, in Vancouver, BC.
Social enterprises are defined as businesses owned or operated by a non-profit organization. There are different legal structures that social enterprises can operate under, and the possibility of new ones in the future (like BC's proposed Community Interest Corporations, or CIC's).
Enterprising Non-Profits (enp) is a program that supports Social Enterprises. Its website(www.enterprisingnonprofits.ca) provides extensive resources for social enterprises across Canada.
