We all profit
The Centre for Social Enterprise Development (CSED) is a not for profit organization that supports organizations whose primary objective is to drive systematic social change. CSED provides a continuum of support for social enterprises at all stages of development throughout the Ottawa region. We believe in the power of the social enterprise sector, and its ability to make the world a better place.
WHAT SOCIAL ENTERPRISES ARE SAYING ABOUT US
“Our journey to create resiliency among youth in our community, opportunities for our low income neighbours, and a feeling of accomplishment for staff has been guided by CSED every step of the way. CSED has been instrumental in training our staff to think strategically about business while supporting social impacts. Thanks to CSED we are now influencing others to consider social enterprise as a wonderful way to create change.”
