Fact Sheets


The Social Economy Centre developed a number of fact sheets and backgrounders based on some of the research carried out by the centre. These two-page descriptions of case study research are meant to be used by partner organizations to highlight their work and are also meant for general public consumption. They are meant to be shared widely.

The following are factsheets developed from the research projects carried out by the Southern Ontario Social Economy Node.
