We are pleased to announce the release of Okanagan Circular Society’s Community Enterprise Overview, a short yet comprehensive tour of the OCS vision, model, approach, and key areas of activity.
Significant progress has been made, and has planned three initial focus areas related to Phase 2 of the roadmap:
- Corporate Development
- Community Wealth Building
- Food Resilience Venture
We welcome the OCS team working to realize the OCS’s community potential, with extensive experience across business, academic, community, and sustainability sectors – and highlights the OCS’s power to draw top talent around the purpose of generating community wealth and well-being.
Co-creating holistic socio-economic systems invites all of our responsibility. The OCS has a solid foundation built, and is ready to develop the larger Community Enterprise framework for rebuilding community wealth and well-being.
Opportunity for Funding & Co-creation
To realize the OCS potential, we are requesting not-for-profit funding for Phase 2 and Phase 3. With traditional economic development funding to be tapped for Phases 4, and Phase 3 providing opportunities for investment capital with social returns.
The OCS team invites expertise to help build the scalable Community Enterprise.
