Research Phase 1: Baseline Evaluation and Gap Analysis

The first phase of research will establish a baseline of existing legislation and forms to populate a table that compares approximately 15 venture models currently used by social entrepreneurs in Canada, the US and the UK.

This phase will bring together statistics, aggregated from available information about hybrid organizations in Canada (e.g.: Province of British Columbia, Province of Nova Scotia, federal level activity), the United States and the United Kingdom.

This research will contribute to gap analysis about current Canadian legislation in comparison with other hybrid corporate models in the US and UK.
