The world seems to be sliding towards a “new normal” of precarious work, stagnant wages, and a growing gap between the rich and poor. Climate change and its negative impact is taking a foothold in urban and rural communities, and the necessities of life, such as energy, food and land, are increasingly falling into the hands of large corporate interests. However, there are growing examples
of different ways of doing things and building upon these foundations. In Canada and globally, innovations and new economic models are taking a foothold, moving from experimentation into practice to challenge the mainstream narrative.

Uniting civil society in a vision of an economy that includes everyone will enable us to work collectively on root causes and create viable alternatives. In Ontario, the nonprofit sector is already helping to fuel this movement. Be part of the action for change! Find out how your work contributes to economies, practices and policies that put people and communities first.

Join us for an interactive day of reflection, learning and action as we explore these themes and uncover exciting examples of what organizations and groups are doing now and how we can work together to build up a new economy in Ontario. The event is hosted by the Learning Enrichment Foundation, in partnership with the Ontario Nonprofit Network and Ontario Network of Employment Skills Training Projects (ONESTEP).
