|The social and solidarity economy complements the public and private sectors. It is part of a plural economy. The social and solidarity economy is made up of collective enterprises engaged in the production of both goods and services in the public interest. It collaborates with different levels of government.|
In other words, the social and solidarity economy includes all non-profit organizations, cooperatives, mutual companies and associations. The activities of these organizations are based on values of solidarity and democracy and they contribute both to social well-being and economic growth.
