Synergy Session: Fishing for Sustainability

Well before the term “social enterprise” became commonplace in the economic landscape of this province, the Labrador Fisherman’s Union Shrimp Company and the Torngat Fish Producers Cooperative were paving the way for lasting, sustainable social and economic impact in their communities. Forty years later the two entities continue as viable community-owned enterprises, driving economic activity, employment and investment, and have generated extensive social and economic spinoff effects. Join Memorial University’s Harris Centre and Centre for Social Enterprise to hear about how these enterprises came to be, what challenges they have faced along the way, and discuss what other communities and enterprises can learn from their experiences.
