Winnipeg Social Enterprise Centre Opening

The  Social Enterprise Centre had its official opening celebration on May 26, 2012. The building at 765 Main Street in Winnipeg’s North End was purchased some months ago by a consortium of three social enterprises (BUILD, Manitoba Green Retrofit and Pollock’s Hardware Co-op). It has undergone significant renovations and is now home to six community organizations in addition to the three social enterprises. The event attended by several hundred people included tours around the building and an opportunity to make a contribution to a mosaic to be prominently displayed in the building. The Centre is the latest development in Winnipeg’s social enterprise sector.
