This year marks the fifth anniversary of Toronto International Microfinance Summit Canada's premiere microfinance event.  Since inception, our goal has been to shine the light on education and meaningful issues in microfinance, one of the world's best hand up poverty reduction tools.

Our theme this year is Microfinance: Catalyst for Change.  We will explore important topics surrounding microfinance growth and implications for change including: microfinance and water, women's empowerment, scale and sustainability, local initiatives, technology, and aboriginal peoples and first nations. This year's conference promises to bring insight and inside perspectives from microfinance experts including development professionals, NGOs, foundations, social finance innovators, government officials, politicians, academics, entrepreneurs and business leaders.
