The Ethio-Canadian Seniors Club (ECSC) was established in 2012 to mobilize Ethiopian Canadian seniors in the Greater Toronto Area to participate various civic and community engagement activities to improve their social connections, break isolation and improve access to services and programs. We help in connecting seniors with services like health, recreation, immigration, etc. ECSC works to also create a seniors-friendly Ethiopian community in the Greater Toronto Area.
The Social Economy through Social Inclusion (SETSI) model aims to tell a story, change minds, shift perspectives, and grow communities. Our coalition was developed as a response to some of the emerging trends and challenges we have collectively witnessed in the social economy, social finance, impact investing and cooperative ecosystems. We are a broad coalition of young executives, social entrepreneurs, community organizers, economists, researchers, lawyers, and social justice advocates.
