The Social Economy Stories Project

The blending of social and economic objectives is taking root
across the world as the best means to replace dependency and exclusion
with self-determination and self-sufficiency.

The Canadian Social Economy Hub, with funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, is co-led by the Canadian CED Network and the University of Victoria’s BC Institute for Co-operative Studies, with several hundred research partners and projects throughout Canada.

The Social Economy stories are designed to provide practitioners’ perspectives on what the Social Economy means to them and their communities. These stories capture the human face of the sector and demonstrate the Social Economy as a real movement that is addressing the social, economic and environmental challenges of today in integrative and innovative ways.
