Canadian Women’s Foundation Economic Development Collaborative Fund: Social Enterprise Practive Development and Outcomes Research
This long-term initiative brings together seven foundations and corporations to support women’s social purpose enterprise development across Canada. The Collaborative Fund includes the CIBC, The Ontario Trillium Foundation, George Cedric Metcalf Foundation, and the Bank of Montreal. During the Fund’s first five years, Eko Nomos facilitated a collaborative process with grantees to capture effective practices in the implementation of social purpose enterprises with women.

Eko Nomos also completed a five-year action research and learning process with the Fund’s 10 social enterprise development grantees during which we identified effective practice and outcomes.
This project produced an evaluation guide providing tools, methods and systems that are used to support organizations in documenting and analyzing the outcomes of their work.
