For a long time now, I have been working with actors of the social and solidarity economy in Quebec, in particular on development tools, including finance/access to capital and public policies. I also work at the international level with organizations such as OCDE, BIT and UNRISD (United Nations), amongst others. I collaborate with researchers and actors of the GSEF (Global Social Economy Forum) and am a member of the Board of C.I.T.I.E.S and of TIESS, organizations of knowledge transfer and experiences in Quebec and internationally. I collaborated with the McConnell Foundation here in Canada and am interested in the role played by foundations as investors in social economy initiatives and/or having a social impact through their broader investment choices. Foundations are more and more investors in synergy with their traditional roles as donors.
