Report Released: Yellowknife’s Voluntary and Nonprofit Sector

3ci Research Associate and Carleton graduate Jerald Sabin has released a report on the state of the voluntary and nonprofit sector in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. The report formed part of the community-led initiative started in June 2009 to examine the state of Yellowknife’s social economy, assess its current structure and organization, and explore its evolving relationships with Government of Canada, the Government of the Northwest Territories, and the City of Yellowknife. It argues that both federal and territorial governments have failed to provide an adequate public support system for the northern social economy, creating a universe of lost opportunity in a territory where the cost of social provision remains high and the needs distinctive. The report is being released in partnership with the Social Economy Research Network of Northern Canada.
