CAFIID releases 2021 State of Sector Report

On December 1, 2021, the Canada Forum on Impact Investment and Development (CAFIID) launched its 2021 State of the Sector Report.  Among other findings, the report found that Canadian impact investment assets in developing and emerging economies total $3.5 billion, a significant increase over the past three years. The report also examined diversity in the sector, finding that “women make up a significant proportion of those working in the impact investing sector here in Canada, which we believe will drive greater gender-lens investing into emerging markets. That said, we recognize there is more work to be done to measure and advance diversity in terms of employment within the sector in Canada. Moving forward, CAFIID will focus more resources on understanding and promoting diversity in our sector.”  A CAFIID member, Jackson and Associates is proud to have been a sponsor of the study.  To access the report, please click HERE
