Who we are
Enactus Saint Mary’s is a community of student, academic and business leaders enabling progress through entrepreneurial action. Enactus allows students to take the skills they have developed in the classroom apply them to challenges in the real world.
What we do
Guided by academic advisers and business experts, post-secondary student leaders across Canada create and implement community empowerment projects that transform lives and build a better, more sustainable world. In addition, the experience helps students develop the kind of talent and perspective that is essential to becoming progressive leaders. More than 350 community empowerment projects are currently running across the country.
We currently operate eight projects ranging from working with at-risk youth, eliminating barriers to the workforce, to educating imprisoned women, and to consulting small businesses and helping them realize their full potential.
The Alumni Board is a group of leaders who were a part of Enactus Saint Mary’s/SIFE SMU during their time at Saint Mary’s University, who now offer advice and guidance to create positive change and develop leadership in current Enactus students.
The Business Advisory Board is a hub of experienced and knowledgeable professionals who through their network can advise us on ways we can expand our reach and increase the quality in the projects we operate.
