Looks Like Social Enterprise in Newfoundland and Labrador

Here at Guide to the Good we're all about sharing great stories of local, social and green choices from companies and organizations throughout Newfoundland and Labrador and beyond. 

From EverGreen Recycling to Neighbourhood Thrift to the Fogo Island Inn, social enterprise is a huge deal in this province.

It's good, it's growing, and due in part to an new initiative, it's going grow even more! 

Over the next year nine social enterprises in Newfoundland and Labrador are preparing to ramp up to the next level.

Guide to the Good is thrilled to partner with the Community Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador to share stories of some of these social enterprises in a brand new livestream series, Looks Like Social Enterprise.

Looks Like Social Enterprise livestream series

Through 2023, Guide to the Good founder Kim Todd and CFNL's Nicole Dawe will chat with leaders of up-and-coming and well-established social enterprises in Newfoundland and Labrador. 

Looks Like Social Enterprise will explore the social, cultural and environmental purposes that underpin the social enterprises, and share how each one contributes to a strong, sustainable future for the province and all who live here.  

Looks Like Social Enterprise will stream from the Guide to the Good Facebook page

Check schedule here.

Each episode will be published as a story on the Guide to the Good site, and linked to this page.
