A common identification for the social economy

Why identify yourself?

To facilitate the recognition of social economy enterprises and to illustrate the added value of collective enterprises in Quebec.

What does the logo mean?

Enterprises that display the "es-social economy" logo are identified as social economy enterprises, also known as collective enterprises.

With a social mission to serve their members or their community and a strong local anchoring, these enterprises are either cooperatives, enterprising non-profits or mutuals. They adhere to the principles set out in the Social Economy Act of Quebec.
