New Book Published Based on Southern Ontario Social Economy Node Research


Edited by Laurie Mook, Jack Quarter, and Sherida Ryan

While the term ‘social economy’ is used widely in Western Europe and Quebec, it has had minimal currency in English Canada, where the differences between the public and private sectors and among nonprofits, co-operatives, social enterprises, and community economic development organizations have been emphasized.  Researching the Social Economy addresses these limitations by presenting a collection of original essays on the burgeoning bodies of research on the social economy across Canada.
