Financial Post, "The countdown to launching social impact bonds in Ontario is underway"
The good news is that the start line for the first social impact bond to be developed in Ontario and brought to the market is within sight.
And when the line appears, investors will be able to purchase a fixed income security that combines a financial return plus a social return – provided, of course that positive measurable outcomes are achieved. “Money is at risk, given that returns are based on outcomes,” said Susan Manwaring, a partner at Miller Thomson whose practice is advising organizations in the social and community sector.
