Profile of Social Enterprises in Northern Ontario

In early 2017 NORDIK Institute conducted an on-line survey of social enterprises to establish a baseline of data to inform the development of resources to support fostering, strengthening and scaling. The 40 respondents represented a diversity of SEs in terms of location, size, services and duration, with the majority (47.4 %) operating more than three years, over 25% identifying as start ups in the first year of operation and approx. 16% operating for less than three years. The graphic provides an overview of the data gathered from participating SEs.
