The Invisible Heart
NOVA SCOTIA PREMIERE
Special Screening & Panel Discussion
Wednesday, October 3rd
6:30pm @Neptune Theatre
The world’s first documentary about Social Impact Bonds (SIBs) is coming to Nova Scotia at a time when this new investment model, one that marries government services with private capital, is top of mind across the country.
The conversation around Social Impact Bonds is important to many stakeholders and sectors as SIBs are poised to tackle issues of health care, child welfare, unemployment, homelessness and mental health. There are currently four implemented SIBs in Canada, with three nearing launch and several more in development.
Where is Nova Scotia on the issue? What are the challenges and merits of bringing SIBs to the province? What happens when we pay investors a profit for helping society’s most vulnerable?
Join filmmaker Nadine Pequeneza and our exciting lineup of panelists to find out:
