About Social Capital Partners:

Social Capital Partners (SCP) is a Canadian non-profit founded in 2001 to focus on designing and
implementing new financial tools that broaden economic opportunity, security and inclusion. We are independently funded which enables us to actively engage across a variety of issues without
compromising our values.

Over the past few years SCP has focused on identifying initiatives that could create pathways to asset ownership, wealth-building and economic security for working Canadians. We have recently led the work to establish employee ownership trusts (EOTs) in Canada. We believe that growing wealth inequality represents a threat to economic and democratic resilience.

SCP will continue to build on our recent successes. Our upcoming work will focus on developing projects, building networks, conducting research and advocating for transformative policy ideas that will reduce the unsustainable concentration of wealth occurring in Canada.
