Northern Ontario Case Studies 2015

(…from the Northern Ontario case studies website of the Food Security Research Network)

Social innovation brings together new behaviours, new perspectives and diverse relationships to shape and build a more connected, stronger and more resilient regional local food system. Northern Ontario is self-organizing social innovation within its alternative local food system creating new solutions, fresh thinking and unique approaches. Ten case studies from across the vast expanse of Northern Ontario are profiled as independent initiatives that are growing in the interdependent possibilities for deepening connectedness and capital needed to transform and build resilience into Northern Ontario as a resilient connected food hub.
