Draft declaration of the National Summit on a People-Centered Economy

June 1, 2010

The people-centered economy has progressed considerably in Canada in recent years, but the gains are still fragile and challenges substantial. The continued development of a people-centered economy cannot proceed without an overall perspective that draws a link between local, national and planetary, between where something is produced and where it is consumed and between worker and the socially aware investor. A people-centered economy cannot be fully realized without the mobilization of a society as a whole.

In concluding this Summit, each of us commits to continue mobilizing for a model of development that leaves nobody aside, so that, more than ever before, solidarity will be at the heart of economic activity throughout Canada and around the world.
