A System in Need of Change
We assert that our current economy, which is dependent on ever-increasing growth, resource extraction, and unrestrained consumption, is fundamentally at odds with the social and environmental needs of the world.
Building Resilient, Local, Economies
As our current economic system breaks apart, it is along the fractured edges that Ecotrust Canada plants the seeds for systems change.
Proving the Possible through Social Innovation
Our approach focuses on triggering systems change through social innovation.
Our work is social — we support communities in creating change for themselves as active participants who take the lead in defining their own futures.
Our work is innovative — our strategies explore alternative solutions, both new and old, that are outside the bounds of the current economic system.
