At CSI, we are all about working together to find solutions that put people and planet first. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we feel the need for collaboration and community now, more than ever. CSI is here for you – even from a distance – to help you accelerate your impact. 



CSI Supports

Here’s what we’ve got to help get through this time! Our work is evolving as we hear more from our members about the effects of COVID-19 on their businesses and organizations. 

ASK

In March 2020 we asked our membership to complete an Impact Survey. We have compiled our findings in the CSI COVID-19 Impact Report.


FUND

We established the pay-what-you-can style CSI Community Rent Pool to help our members who need it most.


CATALYZE

Calendar: CSI is still working to accelerate the success of our members: we’ll continue to convene our members and broader community to connect, collaborate, learn, and share… now online! CSI’s Programming Calendar, put together by the CSI team, is your place to check out all the online webinars, workshops, peer circles, and talks we have available.

Programs: Our accelerators and educational courses such as Social Entrepreneurship 101Agents of Change and Climate Ventures’ Earth Tech are all now also taking place online.


CONNECT

Member Events: Our member events and rituals will now be virtual. We’re committed to fostering the CSI community – moving the party from the kitchen to the cloud! Psst: fear not, members, Salad Club is still happening! Check out our calendar!

Platforms: CSI is all about making and fostering connections. Members can check out CSI’s COVID-19 Slack channel by connecting with their Community Animator and join The Common Platform (coming soon!) to get advice, meet new people, and keep our virtual connections strong.


GUIDE

COVID Resource Guide: We’ve compiled a guide with over 100 resources to help you navigate this difficult time. We will keep it up-to-date to serve you best! Access our Business and Community Resource list now.

Concierge: CSI will also provide custom support for our members to connect you with government programs and walk them through the steps of applying for services. If you’re interested or have questions, you can email us support@socialinnovation.ca.
