This report documents new research showing that social enterprises, businesses operated by non-profit organizations for the dual purpose of generating income and creating a social, environmental, and cultural value, are significant contributors to both employment creation and economic generators. The report profiles data from 140 of 295 social enterprises in both provinces (Alberta and British Columbia, Canada) gathered in the spring and summer of 2010. These social enterprises are engaged in a wide variety of social, cultural, environmental and revenue raising market activities.
