Care, Cooperation and Activism in Canada’s Northern Social Economy (Paperback)
About this item
People across Canada’s north have initiated unique community institutions to support a range of social-economic activities that are neither state-driven nor profit-oriented. Though crucial to the health and vibrancy of communities, this "third sector"—artistic, recreational, cultural, political, business, and economic development organizations—has only recently been studied. Developed through the ambitious collaboration of the Social Economy Research Network of Northern Canada, these fifteen case studies show the innovative diversity and utter necessity of home-grown institutions in communities across Labrador, Nunatsiavut, Nunavik, Nunavut, Northwest Territories, and Yukon. This book will benefit readers, researchers, and students interested in social economy, Aboriginal studies, and northern communities.
