A partner member of the Canadian Social Economy Research Partnerships.


BALTA is a regional research collaboration amongst community based organizations, universities and colleges in Alberta and British Columbia, Canada, with an interest in the social economy. BALTA's mandate involves researching various aspects of the social economy with a view to both increasing knowledge about the sector and identifying ways to strengthen and expand the sector. BALTA is the BC-Alberta node of a pan-Canadian research initiative, the Canadian Social Economy Research Partnerships (CSERP). This five year research initiative (2006-2011) is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).

This website and the linked online library contain an extensive and growing body of information about BALTA, its research and other programs, research results, and the social economy more broadly.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about BALTA and the social economy.
