What others are saying about TCNG:

"It's honestly a breath of fresh air to come across a website based on a commitment to inclusive dialogue and social action for the benefit of all members of many diverse communities in and around the Capital Region. I look forward to our continued collaboration."

David Long, Professor of Sociology, King's University College

"The services offered by Leo Campos Aldunez & the Community Networks Group are unique and effective, and have become a primary part of my small business network over the past 5 years. Leo is very easy to work with, prompt, personable, thorough, and most importantly for my small business, Leo gets results. My investment in Leo's services is always returned multi-fold. I recommend him to others without hesitation."

Dawn Bissett, Owner
Look for the Rainbow Music

"Leo Campos is an intellectually stimulating personality who loves to engage in literary & political conversations as well as in taking action on issues of the day. Leo has used his passion and concern for political and social problems of our time to inform the public on community engagement activities which he promotes through his social e-marketing network. He has run this service very responsibly for a number of years. I have used it on many occasions to publicize my professional/volunteer activities and I have never had cause to be disappointed."

SOCIAL ENTERPRISE | We are shifting our attention on this editorial page. From now on, we’ll be regularly featuring the emerging social enterprise and the cooperative sectors in our city, province/country. Our aim is to spotlight creative, empowering and new economic development initiatives that are incrementally contributing to the well-being of individuals and communities by creating meaningful employment, a sense of dignity-of-labour and deep belonging.

COMMUNITY ECONOMICS | Some may be related to new technologies, others to goods & services. What they have in common is the remarkable enthusiasm, resilience and visionary calling among those leading and/or participating in such endeavours – it is indeed a powerful calling. Have a look!

TIMBRE | Officially formed by Jordan Tomnuk of Tomnuk Design and Mike Lam of Mike Lam Design in 2015. Timbre began as a workshop that would soon be home to 9 other maker/designers. In July 2016 Timbre expanded their efforts into the now newly-renovated Timbre Studios. With the help of Hunt Amor, Jordan and Mike designed and built what is now a hub for thirteen creative start up companies. Our mission is to foster designers, craftspeople, creatives and artists. Currently offering shop spaces, studios and gallery rental.

STRAWMAN FARM | Founded on the idea to bring top quality, ethically raised bison meat directly to the people: ranch to table. Although Strawman Farm was founded in 2009, Bob and Lori Holm along with Sons Stephan, Dylan, and Liam, are dedicated to a lifestyle of watching over and caring for their herds in a humane and ethical way.

VERTO LABOUR SERVICES | Companies that hire Verto Labour Services are looking for a good day’s work – and that is exactly what they get. Eager young workers, trained in basic worksite rules, showing up on time, supported by a crew leader and ready to do whatever needs to be done. Verto is an off-shoot of YOUCAN Youth Services, an organization that has provided programs for at-risk youth in Edmonton for over a decade.

EQUI-TEA MULTICULTURAL CATERING | Equi-tea is a social enterprise operated by the Multicultural Health Brokers Co-op. For the past year, The Multicultural Health Brokers Co-op has truly enjoyed serving you all with the food we most love ourselves through Equi-tea Catering. Delicious food, excellent service and very much worth of your support.

SERVICE & COMMUNITY | As usual, we remain at your service. We thank you for your support and welcome your feedback; if we can be of assistance don’t hesitate to get in touch. We invite you and your friends/colleagues to subscribe to our Infomail Newsletter– and, if you appreciate this site, consider supporting it via advertising, affinity sponsorship and/or a donation. Have a safe & enjoyable summer season.

Video Resources for those working/volunteering in social development, ecology and the Humanities.

STOP Poverty: Start a Worker-owned Cooperative | Why is chronic poverty tolerated in America? Is our economic system flawed? Through personal stories and insights, University of Alabama professor J. Palmer (Jim) Brown explores the problem of poverty and advocates a solution in worker ownership and cooperation. His work with non-profit companies and people in poverty led him to co-found The Moses Project, an organization dedicated to the promotion of worker-owned cooperatives in Alabama. – TED ©
