On March 30th 2017, at Parliament Hill in Ottawa, 15 young Canadians came together to pitch their most creative socially responsible business models at the Youth Innovation Summit. These entrepreneurs were selected from 150 young Canadians from diverse backgrounds, all of whom had participated earlier this year in the Active Citizens Social Enterprise (ACSE) training programme.  

The Summit showcased the youth’s passion and commitment for social enterprise while convening high level representatives from the public and private sectors, innovation-focused enterprises and start-ups, social enterprises of all sizes, and UN representatives.
