Join Alberta's Only Gathering of Social Venture Leaders! (August 23rd-25th, 2023)

The wait is finally over, Social Venture Institute: Alberta is back on this year from August 23rd-25th at Métis Crossing, Alberta’s first and only Métis cultural interpretive centre.


It's a gathering of the best social venture leaders from across Alberta and beyond. Leaders like Rachel (pictured), founder of Hope Cleaning, who has employed over 60 women coming out of vulnerable situations, domestic violence or exploitation in Calgary, have attended SVI in the previous years. 



This ain’t your typical boring business conference! SVI: Banff is highly interactive, with a strong focus on peer-to-peer learning. Throw into the mix lots of nature, art, a one-of-a-kind community, delicious food, incredible speakers and tons of learning, and it’s an event you’ll never forget. All the rejuvenation and beauty you'd get from a retreat, but with the practical knowledge and connections to actually implement your new found inspiration.

For many of last years attendees, SVI: Alberta 2022 was a life-changing experience. But don’t take it from us! 

“We left with a sense that we are not alone in this work. We left with a sense of community.”

Sebastien Rioux, Newo
