WELCOME TO OUR NETWORK

SEEnet is building a network which will advance the participation of Quebec’s English-speakers in the social solidarity economy. Housed within the Regional Development Network (RDN) – a collective of 17 regional organizations serving English-speaking communities in Quebec – SEEnet is mobilizing resources so these communities can face socio-economic challenges with entrepreneurial approaches, active participation, and purposeful solutions.

OUR PURPOSE

SEEnet strategically mobilizes community knowledge, leverages available resources, and builds capacity for English-speaking communities to better participate in Quebec’s social solidarity economy. We offer education, coaching, and mentoring, to aspiring collective entrepreneurs and community leaders.

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

We will increase engagement with English-speaking communities in the social solidarity economy by:

Increasing interaction and awareness of the social, solidarity economy and its benefits to English-speaking communities in Quebec;

Providing entry-level education opportunities to these groups to develop knowledge and engagement in the social, solidarity economy in Quebec; and

Making accessible technical expertise for these groups to develop entrepreneurial capacity to better participate in the social, solidarity economy in Quebec.

BUILD A NETWORK

We will expand the English-speaking community’s presence in the organizational ecosystem of Quebec’s social solidarity economy by:

Cultivating purposeful interactions between community organizations, enterprises, and individuals; building relationships, awareness, and participation in the regional social solidarity economy ecosystem;

Creating a network of solidarity for organizations to provide support and resources; and

Formalizing participation of the English-speaking communities at the provincial level of Quebec’s social and solidarity economy ecosystem.

WHAT IS THE SOCIAL SOLIDARITY ECONOMY?

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.
