This report begins to paint an interesting portrait of the social economy in BC and Alberta. It was created through the BC-Alberta Social Economy Research Alliance (BALTA). This alliance was initially started as a 5 year project in March 2006 funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, and then later extended to 2012. The purpose of this alliance was to build a better understanding of the social economy sector in Alberta and BC. The Mapping and Portraiture team, in particular, implemented a survey to better describe the size and scope of the social economy in these provinces. Development of the mapping program began in September 2006, and the survey was launched in January 2008. This report is the culmination of that work.
