Now in its 11th year, the Social Finance Forum, organized and convened by the MaRS Centre for Impact Investing, attracts more than 500 investors, entrepreneurs, finance professionals, charity leaders and public service visionaries who are reshaping markets and ensuring that every dollar makes a difference.

Sessions will be organized around four streams, each featuring high-profile thought leaders, disruptive entrepreneurs and groundbreaking ideas.
