Social Finance Forum

The 2012 Social Finance Forum: Measuring up took place November 8 and 9 at the MaRS Discovery District.

Featuring keynote addresses by recognized leaders from both Canada and around the world, the fifth annual Social Finance Forum embraced the theme of “measuring up.”

The two-day Forum  examined the opportunities and challenges surrounding impact measurement, while exploring what makes a good deal and how existing market opportunities measure up.
