About our Organization
Shorefast was established to contribute to the economic and cultural resilience of Fogo Island, Newfoundland,
creating a model for contemporary rural communities. Activities are focused at the intersection of business, art,
community and nature.
The Shorefast Group operate a social enterprise model where surpluses from business activity flow through the
Charity and are reinvested in community programs. Entities under this unique corporate structure include Shorefast
Foundation (federally registered Canadian charity) and Fogo Island Arts (contemporary art residency programme),
alongside for-profit business ventures including Fogo Island Inn, Fogo Island Shop, Fogo Island Fish, and
Community Host Services.
Social business is an emerging field in Canada, where for-profit economic activity directly contributes to positive
social outcomes typically served by the non-profit community. Shorefast is a leader in this emerging space, creating not-just-for-profit businesses that maximize return on sacred capital (natural, social, cultural) alongside economic capital. The goal is to create a next generation economy of strong, resilient communities – a global network of deeply local places.
The successful candidate will join a committed team and help create business in service of community.
