To demonstrate the social and economic impacts of its work, ACEM  has teamed up with the innovative and forward-thinking Innoweave. This partnership, with the goal of discovering new approaches to evolving evaluation, impact assessment, and strategy, has allowed ACEM Microcrédit Montréal to generate its theory of change, which structured its 2017-2020 action plan.

This partnership has been made possible thanks to the support from the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation and PME MTL Centre-Ville.


Innoweave is an initiative of the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation and the Social Innovation Generation.
