About Our Keynote Speakers

Anne Jamieson recently retired from United Way Greater Toronto and now engages in freelance work in the social enterprise sector. While at United Way, Anne ran the Toronto Enterprise Fund for almost 20 years, where she developed a robust curriculum and set of tools to support the start-up, stabilization, and scale-up of employment social enterprises. Among these is the Business Cost Recovery methodology of identifying and separating social costs from business costs, and measuring sustainability: the focus of Anne’s presentation.

 

Stacey Corriveau is the founding Executive Director of the BC Centre for Social Enterprise. Launched in 2005, this virtual organization is headquartered in Abbotsford, and provides social enterprise advice to community groups across Canada, with a particular focus on legal structures for Canadian social enterprises. Stacey was primary author of the 2011 publication called Venturing Forth: Social Enterprise and the Community Living Sector. This project was spearheaded by the BC Employment Network.
