About Us

Our vision at Enactus Laurier is to create maximum social impact through the development of social enterprises, and to empower our students to become changemakers in their communities.

Our Chapter Mission

We are all about making a difference. Not only in the surrounding communities from the amazing work our enterprises do, but also in the lives of all of the incredible individuals who comprise our team. By joining this community, Laurier students are provided with life-changing opportunities to go beyond the boundaries of the school to explore their own passions and to help make a difference. We are passionate about change through innovative ideas unlocked through our community to make the world a better place. All of this is possible with Enactus Laurier.

What Is Social Enterprise?

Enactus fosters the development of social enterprises - businesses that donโ€™t only focus on profits, but on giving back to the surrounding community. Successful social enterprises are those that are self-sustaining and donโ€™t have to rely on grants and external funding to continue operations. All profits are reinvested back into the enterprises to help maximize social impact

Our Enterprises

At Enactus Laurier, our 9 enterprises are working towards achieving various United Nations Sustainable Development Goals while receiving support to continue to scale, form partnerships, and to really make a difference in our community. Our enterprises range from helping our environment, helping individuals in need, and much more!


Every year, Enactus teams across the world compete in a series of Regional, National and Global competitions. In the 2019-2020 year, Enactus Laurier is honoured to be able to represent Canada at the World Cup as well as having earned many other enterprise-specific national awards.
