Once your environmental commitment or policy has been adopted, the next step is to begin the process of developing an environmental strategy or action plan. The breadth and depth of your environmental strategy will be greatly influenced by the scope of your environmental policy.

Appendix J - Additional Case Studies; Two Housing Co-operatives [Canadian Co-operative Association, CCA]

Publisher: 
Canadian Co-operative Association
Year of publication: 
2001

The New Beginnings Housing Co-operative is a community-based development initiative established in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. The purpose of the co-op is to fill the economic void created by run-down homes and vacant lots in older neighbourhoods of the city. A second, but equally important, goal of the co-op is to develop a programme to revitalize properties and provide an opportunity for those unable to qualify for a mortgage to become homeowners. The New Beginnings Housing Co-operative purchases homes in need of repairing consultation with a realtor.

If you go on a seal hunt using breathing holes to hunt seals, and you go by yourself, and if you cover only one of the breathing holes, you don’t have that much chance of being lucky. A seal has five or six breathing holes, so the more you can cover, the better, and so usually the whole camp would go out—with their dogs—and try to cover as many holes as possible and everyone shares. And that is why I think the Inuit took so easily to co-operatives

Appendix H - Case Study Guidelines [Canadian Co-operative Association, CCA]

Year of publication:

Appendix E - The ICA Statement on the Co-operative Identity [Canadian Co-operative Association, CCA]

Appendix D - Co-operatives and Communities: Some Theoretical Considerations [Canadian Co-operative Association, CCA]

Publisher: 
Canadian Co-operative Association
Year of publication: 
2001

It is a vast understatement to say that the current state of social and economic development within Aboriginal and First Nation communities is far from satisfactory. A recent study1 of the Aboriginal economic gap in Saskatchewan, for example, demonstrated that, compared to the non-Aboriginal community, Aboriginal people experience higher poverty rates, lower education levels, and chronic unemployment.

Appendix C - Co-operatives in Quebec Aboriginal Communities: Review of the Literature [Canadian Co-operative Association, CCA]

Publisher: 
Canadian Co-operative Association
Year of publication: 
2001

This literature review is based on the few documents written on Aboriginal economic development in Québec, and more specifically on the co-operative component. In view of the limited information identified, an attempt has been made to augment this review with some informal telephone conversations with key players and organizations in Aboriginal economic development.

In order to understand the nature and extent of Aboriginal co-operative development as it is working “on the ground,” interviews were held with provincial and territorial officials to access first-hand perspectives on the types of challenges, trends, and possibilities currently being faced in this sector. Telephone interviews with more than twenty-five officials were held from April to June of 2000 (see Annex 1, following this portion of Appendix B, fore list of contacts).
