WELCOME TO OUR NETWORK
SEEnet is building a network that will advance the participation of Québec’s English-speakers in the social solidarity economy. Housed within the Regional Development Network (RDN)—a collective of 18 regional organizations serving English-speaking communities in Québec—SEEnet is mobilizing resources so these communities can face socio-economic challenges with entrepreneurial approaches, active participation, and purposeful solutions.

WHAT IS A SOCIAL, SOLIDARITY ECONOMY
Built on economic, social, cultural, and environmental objectives, the social solidarity economy rebalances the priorities of economic development with a focus on the value of people over profits.
Through a wide variety of economic activities – defined by a commitment to serving the community through democratic participation and self-management – the social solidarity economy is made up of non-profits, cooperatives and other hybrid social enterprise models covering all sectors of our economy.
While Quebec is a world leader in the social solidarity economy, the English-speaking communities in the province has been traditionally less involved. SEEnet facilitates access to programs and resources to meet these economic, social, and environmental goals – rebalancing and prioritizing the sustainable socio-economic development.
