About this Event

Join your friends and colleagues for some holiday cheer and snacks, some social enterprise gift purchasing, and the launch of the Downtown Eastside Social Enterprise Impact Report!

Tuesday, December 10, from 4 - 7pm - Propulsion Centre - 25 East Hasting

Where others might only see problems, social enterprises in the DTES are a successful community-based response that is producing solutions. We hope our report, with facts and stories, demonstrates the potential of social enterprise and social procurement as a means to add social value into the local marketplace, and contribute to building healthier communities. There will be a presentation about the report at 5:15pm.

Buy Social Canada promotes buying socially to build economic sustainability for social enterprises. This can be done at any level from large-scale social procurement to choosing to buy your holiday gifts from a social enterprise. Support your local social enterprises by shopping at the social enterprise holiday market on December 10th.

The market will be open from 4-7pm and feature the following local social enterprises:

- Common Thread

- East Van Roasters

- Enterprising Women Making Art

- Hives for Humanity

- Just Potters

- Megaphone Magazine

- Skwachays Gallery

and more...

The market will include music from local artist Ravensdaughter.

The venue is wheelchair accessible.

If you are curious about other social enterprises you can support check out our new Gift Directory which features social enterprises from across Canada!

We look forward to celebrating and supporting DTES social enterprises with you on December 10th.
