Social Business

Each of Causeway’s social businesses provides substantial employment experience for our clients in a workplace of good business practice. However, our growing group of innovative social businesses do much more than help disadvantaged people find employment. They support other organizations, share expertise, address societal goals, and forge partnerships that are contributing to more vibrant economic development in Ottawa.

Four social enterprises operate under the umbrella of Causeway Work Centre:
