The Northern Summit on the Social Economy

The 2010 Northern Summit on the Social Economy is being held from November 2 to 4, 2010 in Whitehorse, Yukon at the Old Fire Hall.

Over the past 4 years, the Social Economy Research Network of Northern Canada has been working to create partnerships with organizations, university and college researchers and students to engage in exciting research collaborations to examine the social economy in Canada’s North. As part of these activities we will be hosting a Northern Summit on the Social Economy in order to share research information and hear from social economy organizations. Building sustainable, vibrant communities is the result of careful planning with information and resources that supports their development. We will look at how the social economy currently addresses the pressing social and economic issues facing our communities and how it might be applied further in a northern context. We hope you will be able to join us for this 2 day Summit that will feature information sharing by the researchers and those who work daily in the sector. There is no charge for participants but advanced registration is required in order to attend.

Registration deadline is October 15. Please visit the summit website for more information.
