A social innovation and social finance strategy for Canada
"Innovate for Impact: As a diverse nation of innovators, Canadians should be optimistic about the future. That said, we still face some serious challenges. If we want better social, economic and environmental outcomes, the government needs to ‘do different,’ by rethinking the way social purpose organizations are supported. We need investment in social innovation and social finance." Learn more https://sisfs.ca/

SIAA Canada created the SIAA Challenge as a learning and professional development opportunity for Social Impact Analysts. It is a case competition-style event, designed to deepen our global conversation about methods and approaches to social impact measurement and reporting; to showcase great work, and to critically reflect on differences within professional practice.
The Social Impact Analysts Association‘s (SIAA) 2014 Annual Conference, Talking Data: Measurement with a message, was held in Toronto on November 3rd – 4th in partnership with Social Asset Measurements and Charity Intelligence Canada.
Why are we Talking Data?
Collecting data is not enough. Data will not speak for itself. There is always work to be done to ensure that measurements deliver the right message. Whether we are writing social impact reports for our funders, communicating to internal decision makers or telling stories to inspire our stakeholders, how we present the data has a huge effect on how it is interpreted and then used. This is why at SIAA’s annual conference this year we will be talking about data and how we make it speak. See the program here >>
