There are alternatives to the economic disparity, growing inequality and environmental crises Canadians are facing. Community leaders from coast to coast to coast are using innovative business models, new investment tools and engaging technology to create good jobs, prioritize community and planet, and build strong and resilient communities. A vibrant and resilient economy that includes everyone and puts people and planet first is possible.
QUITE SIMPLY: THE ECONOMY CAN BE BY AND FOR ‘US.’ ALL OF US. ECONOUS.
