AFFC Social Enterprise – Childcare and respite services for caregivers

The AFFC is a feminist organization dedicated to raising awareness of Francophone and Acadian women in their communities, while defending the rights of women in the Canadian Francophonie to live and thrive in French. In order to develop a social finance initiative, the organization will do a market study to validate the profitability of a social enterprise that provides French-language childcare services for parents at conferences in the Ottawa area, as well as French-language respite services for caregivers. This new social enterprise will serve the needs of the community, the women employed, while generating income for AFFC to continue its mission.

Grant amount: $50,000
