  • About The Social Shift Documentary

    Realize Strategies is thrilled to bring you a screening of The Social Shift in partnership with Common Goods Solutions and Buy Social Canada as a part of the Opening Reception of our Innovation Conference.

  • The Social Shift is a documentary that tells the story of business being used as a force for good. After driving 8500 kilometres across Canada interviewing over 50 people in 14 cities, 9 provinces in 6 weeks, travel with us as we drive across the nation, floating on a geographic canvas of consumption and inequity, kindness and generosity and, most of all, a drive for change. We will share the stories of fired-up citizens adding a different type of value to the world through business: social value. Value that is not only economic, but improving people’s lives and bettering society; that builds communities, protects the environment, supports local and employs people of all abilities; a type of value that lives up to the responsibilities that our world and future rely on. Hilarious, informative and heartfelt, this is a journey that will leave viewers inspired, engaged and ready to contribute to making the world a more inclusive and sustainable place for all. Rated 19+
