Toronto International Microfinance Summit is Canada’s Premier Microfinance Event focused on domestic and international microfinance. We shine light on important issues and bring people together for important conversations. Our vision is a world without poverty through microfinance; our mission, to hold an annual event to that end. In this, our 8th year, we are excited to announce a very special evening with a global icon - Muhammad Yunus "Banker to the Poor". Microfinance has evolved to financial inclusion and now, social business. Can Professor Yunus' vision of social business - a new dimension of capitalism - help Indigenous and underrepresented communities thrive? How?
