Community Causes Learning Series - Education: New Income Generation Hub Project

June 13 , 2017

This June we partnered with the Local Economic Development Lab (LEDlab) to hold a Community Causes Learning Event. LEDlab is working to increase the personal incomes of downtown eastside  residents by creating new income generating opportunities. They told us about an upcoming project, the Local Income Generation Hub that will meet people where they are at and help them move along the employment continuum. We also heard about The Binner’s Project that is increasing the well-being of binners by having them identify new ideas for informal employment and recycling activities.

Thank you to our fabulous speakers:

Kiri Bird, Manager

An initiative of Ecotrust Canada and RADIUS SFU 

Johanna Li, Manager
