University Research Alliance for Southern Ontario’s Social Economy 2008 Symposium Event

The Social Economy Centre of the University of Toronto, Imagine Canada, and the Ontario Co-operative Association, have launched a research alliance that aims at enhancing capacity for ongoing research and development for the social economy of Southern Ontario. This project—a Community-University Research Alliance for Southern Ontario’s Social Economy—consists of a network of leading scholars from 11 universities in Southern Ontario, 22 partner organizations, and scholars from seven universities external to the node whose research will be beneficial to this initiative. This Alliance will generate synergy between researchers and practitioners currently working in isolation through the creation of five Research and Practice Clusters, and ultimately contribute to a broader movement. Our Alliance will also create synergy with similar networks in other regions and the social economy internationally.

The Alliance will also build a future generation of researchers, create a presence for the social economy in higher education institutions, and focus heavily on knowledge dissemination. Training of students is a key feature of this Alliance, and for each project graduate students will form part of the team.

Topics for Thursday's meeting will include discussions around "What's New in Legislation for Social Economy Organizations" and "Enabling Social Finance in Ontario."

Social Economy Symposium

This symposium is an opportunity for university researchers and community organizations to discuss cutting-edge research issues facing the social economy. It will be the third annual symposium of a research/education project on Southern Ontario’s Social Economy funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. This small symposium will be structured to allow for full dialogue by all participants. The 2008 Symposium will be a green event; see the symposium's green checklist and the University's Environmental Protection Policy. More information on this event will be posted as available.
