The Trico Foundation (in Calgary) provides educational opportunities and business development funding for non-profits interested in exploring their enterprise potential.

Innoweave.ca is an initiative of the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation, offering a range of materials through a website, workshops and direction coaching, including specific modules on social enterprise and social finance.

The Business Link (a partnership of the governments of Alberta and Canada) provides a wide range of critical information and support to anyone at the earliest stages of starting a business. You may be a non-profit and don’t think of yourself as being in business – but take a look at what they offer and you might be pleasantly surprised and inspired!
