Title                   Sustainable Enterprise Alliance, Ottawa Gatineau
Brief Description       To create a collaboration of businesses in the Ottawa Gatineau to work
                        together and build a resilient, connected community that benefits our local
                        To nurture local business to incorporate the triple bottom line strategy, to
                        lead by example how business can be profitable while nourishing community
                        and environment.

Anticipated Benefits    BALLE (Business alliance for local living economies) believes that local,
                        independent businesses are among our most potent change agents, uniquely
                        prepared to take on the challenges of the twenty-first century with agility,
                        sense of place, and relationship-based approach others lack. They are more
                        than employers and profit-makers; they are neighbors, community builders
                        and the starting point for social innovation, aligning commerce with the
                        common good and bringing transparency, accountability, and a caring human
                        face to the marketplace.
