Social Economy in Canada
Chantier de l’Economie Sociale is an important network consisting of the representatives and promoters (cooperatives and non-profit groups) of social economy enterprises active in over 20 economic sectors, as well as local and regional development stakeholders and community action groups. Its aim is to promote the social economy in Québec and help it flourish.
