The Canadian economy is generally characterized by private enterprise with a small degree of government ownership. But what about organisations like Children's Aid or the Canadian Red Cross? Where do educational and religious organisations, arts groups, social housing, and non-profit daycare fit in?
This book is an up-to-date and comprehensive description of this important and growing "third sector" of the Canadian economy. Jack Quarter describes the key components of this sector, focusing on new approaches to ownership and management that go beyond traditional ideas about how businesses should be owned and run. He discusses new ways of managing social services like childcare and healthcare and looks at new forms of ownership that depart from the traditional public, private, and co-operative structures.
Canada's Social Economy offers a refreshing re-examination of the changing nature of the Canadian economy.
