Profiles of CED in Manitoba

July 12, 2011

Read 50 inspiring stories about CED in action across Manitoba

Our Manitoba office has launched its Profiles of CED in Manitoba project. So far we’ve completed 40 (of 50) stories of communities working to build fairer and stronger local economies, reduce poverty, and revitalize neighbourhoods. Not all of the initiatives use a fully comprehensive CED approach, but each represents an important component of a CED solution.

The project includes stories on a wide range of organizations and businesses; everything from hardware stores to daycares, energy co-ops to local training centres. Learn how they started, the challenges they faced, the positive changes they are making in their communities.

Some of the stories featured:

  • Mountain Equipment Co-op
  • Neechi Foods
  • Assiniboine Credit Union
  • Tall Grass Prairie Bakery
  • Urban Circle Training Centre
  • Festival du Voyageur
  • …And many more
