Expanding Cultural Horizons in Canada

May 3, 2010

The Social Economy stories are designed to provide practitioners’ perspectives on what the Social Economy means to them and their communities. In particular, the stories featured here highlight the voices of Aboriginal, immigrant and women practitioners. Check back, each month as the Canadian CED Network will be featuring a new practitioner of the month.

This month Canadian CED Network is featuring Magdalena Santa Maria Chimbor, a civil society leader, a CED activist, and a prominent member of the women’s movement in Chiclayo, Peru. She is one of the founding members of the Solidarity Economy Initiatives Group (GIES), which opened its first national branch in Chiclayo in 1999.
