Marginalized ethnic communities on the Pacific West Coast of Canada developed community based economies and cooperative organizations tosurvive racially motivated economic and political exclusion. What were the contexts for their emergence? How did these cooperatives operate? What results were generated?  What implications can be drawn for understanding community based cooperative enterprises more generally? Dr. Lee explores these questions by drawing on research on Japanese Canadian fishing cooperatives in the pre-Second World war era and on her personal involvement in an inner city, ethnically diverse Vancouver neighbourhood in the 1970s.
Dr. Lee is an Associate Professor for the department of Women’s Studies at the University of Victoria.
