Causeway collaborates with a variety of partners to provide innovative programming:
Rise Asset Development provides financing (loans, leases and lines of credit) and mentorship to men and women living with mental illness and or addictions who are interested in pursuing self employment. With the support of the Rotman School of Management and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), Causeway is providing outreach for the Rise program in the Ottawa region. For further information, please contact Andrew Riddick at firstname.lastname@example.org
Causeway piloted Your Financial Toolkit, an initiative of the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada. The toolkit includes worksheets, self-assessments, tools, calculators and educational videos on 11 facets of basic financial literacy.
The goal of the Centre for Innovative Social Enterprise Development is to create a continuum of support for social enterprise in the city of Ottawa through access to technical expertise, financing, learning communities, training, and cross-sector partnerships. CISED began as a collaborative between Causeway, Ottawa Community Loan Fund, Carleton Centre for Community Innovation (3Ci), Algonquin College, the Business Innovation Centre and Vanier Community Service Centre. A first in Ontario, CISED is developing an integrated approach to providing services to new and established social enterprises in Eastern Ontario.
