CONTENTS  

OUT OF THE DEVELOPMENT BOX  

How residents of Port Alberni, B.C., the quintessential corporate 
milltown, have come to raise their expectations of local 
development and of themselves.  

WHAT COUNTS  

Swallowed whole, a recent publication on the measurement of 
inputs, outputs, and outcomes could jam up the metabolism of any 
nonprofit organization.  

NEW BREED  

Community Ownership Solutions channels charitable funds into 
businesses that create quality jobs and management opportunities 
for low-income Manitobans, and superior work for their customers. 
By creating 1,000 such jobs in the next ten years, COS hopes to jar 
loose the whole conceit that low wages and no benefits make for 
good renovation and construction.  

COMMUNITY-DRIVEN RESEARCH  

The Trent Centre has pioneered a structure and a strategy for 
putting the research capacity of a university to work meeting the 
information needs of neighbouring CED organizations.  

ENTREWOMEN  

Two years of research and development have issued in 
entrewomen.ca, a website dedicated to advancing the commercial 
capacity and interconnection of rural women.  

FINANCING CED IN AN ERA OF CORPORATE SOCIAL 
INVESTMENT  

Originally, the Canadian Youth Business Foundation expected to 
fund its support services for young entrepreneurs strictly by private 
sector donation. Now it is trying to do the job through private and 
public partners - each with its own interests and expectations of 
return on investment.  

TEAM PLAYERS  

What would it be like if government officials responded to CED 
initiatives not with detachment or disdain (or alarm) but eagerly, as 
committed partners? Its been happening in Nova Scotia. The whole 
experience has hinged on a few personalities who are determined 
to make public resources part of the local solution.
