Social Purchase for Social Purpose

Published on 02/02/2012

This series of blogs was prepared for socialfinance.ca published by MaRS Innovation Centre in Toronto.  The commentary argues that governments generally, and municipal governments in particular, can support social enterprises through procurement policy.  Governments can include a community benefits clause in all contracts to promote the training and employment of groups typically marginalized from the labour market, and to help foster links between business and the voluntary sector.
