Beatrice Alain

Chantier de l'economie sociale
Executive Director

Béatrice Alain is Executive Director of the Chantier de l’économie sociale. The Chantier is an autonomous organization whose mandate is to work with social economy stakeholders to promote and develop collective entrepreneurship in order to contribute to the emergence of a more inclusive, equitable and sustainable development model.

Actors in Québec’s social economy have long maintained relationships with partners in other territories in order to learn from best practices, share experiences that have contributed to the emergence of an internationally recognized ecosystem in the social economy in Québec and build alliances, where appropriate. In recent years, Béatrice has been particularly interested in ways and strategies to facilitate dialogue between actors from different sectors and different territories in order to support the emergence of a more democratic economic model and facilitate a just ecological transition.
