Jonathan Wade is a consultant in social finance, small business development and social entrepreneurship. Jonathan has worked for more than 20 years in the not-for-profit sector as a staff member, board member and volunteer in the fields of immigrant integration, international development, human rights, crisis intervention, and poverty alleviation. Before joining CISED, he was a social marketing and social finance consultant in his own firm, Social Delta, supporting a wide array of charitable, for profit, and cooperative clients addressing social causes.

Jonathan’s background in charitable fundraising led him to better understand the growing need for diversified and sustainable revenue sources within the charitable sector. He believes that social enterprise is an effective mechanism to efficiently address gaps in our social fabric while augmenting revenue streams for social causes.

With diverse experience in presenting, training and coaching, combined with a commitment to generating social value through sustainable business, Jonathan now works directly with social entrepreneurs to develop entrepreneurial ideas, access social financing and design effective and sustainable social business plans in the region around Canada’s national capital, Ottawa.  Jonathan is member of the Canadian Council on Social Enterprise as well as an active participant in the national network of enterprising non profit presenters and practitioners.
