The Trico Charitable Foundation, one of SEA’s Canadian members, announced the launch of a project to increase the impact of non-profit organizations’ social enterprises. The project is funded through an investment by the Canadian federal government. The Honorable Diane Finley, Minister of Human Resources and Skills development, said, “We are proud to partner with organizations such as Trico Charitable Foundation to help address complex social issues and we are excited to see the results of this project.”

Trico Charitable Foundation is receiving over $1.5 million in federal funding for the project, called Enterprising Non-Profits Canada. There are a number of local enterprising nonprofit organizations throughout Canada, including enp-Alberta, enp-Toronto, enp-Ottawa, and enp-Nova Scotia.
